The books likewise highlight the special place occupied by the Blessed Virgin Mary, our role model in loving and following Jesus Christ, our Mother to whom we should offer our complete trust and love. In renewing the love and devotion to the Holy Catholic Church, the books enlighten us on the actions that should characterize a truly committed Christian.

Preface
On September 19, 1846, the world was moved by the Apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in La Salette to two children: Mélanie Calvat and Maximino Giraud. The Vatican authorities recognized these apparitions as authentic in 1851. Few people have gone deeply into the content of the messages received at that time. Those who are interested in studying these sources will find extremely interesting topics that help us to comprehend the ups and downs of this century that is drawing to an end. But La Salette is neither the first nor the last. Latin America knows about the important apparitions of Guadalupe in 1531 and one hundred years later in Coromoto (Venezuela), both approved by the Catholic Church. The year 1830 witnessed another similar miracle in France, where the Blessed Virgin Mary asked Catherine Labouré to make a medal, which because of its miraculous effects will be known as "The Miraculous Medal". The apparitions of Lourdes in 1858 and of Fatima in 1917 eloquently confirm the extraordinary presence of the Blessed Virgin Mary in human chronology. She is the Mother of all men and lives close to them. The world has confronted these phenomena in such a lukewarm way that Catholics have not been enriched by the contributions of these transcendental experiences. Many Catholics are unaware of the apparitions in Belgium in 1932-33; in "Tre Fontane" in Rome in 1946 to Bruno Conacchila; those of Jesus to Teresa Musco until 1976, and in whose home, close to Naples, 24 images bled; those of Padre Pío de Pietrelcina until 1968. Few have been enriched by the story of Luisa Piccarreta, the "Daughter of the Divine Will" whose only food was the Sacred Host received during Communion. Although she did not get out of bed for 64 years, she did not suffer from skin, joint and circulation trouble. She wrote 36 books on the "Divine Will", marvelous texts of love. We must not forget the marvelous story of Faustina Kowalska, beatified by His Holiness Pope John Paul II a little more than two years ago and to whom all the devotion of the "Christ of Mercy" is owed. She relates the spiritual retreats she made with Jesus, His daily visits, and the importance of prayer. Where has the modern Catholic placed these experiences, and how have they helped him bring his life of faith up-todate? There are so many opportunities to recognize the "Good News" in the world that we should all be individuals with noble and loving minds because all those messages are poems of love, songs of unity and

ecumenism. But man would rather move in the world of conflict, clinging to difficulties in the midst of darkness that suffocates him, anguished by his finances, injustice, hunger, and so many ills that afflict him. It is surprising to observe that the same dedication given to stating the problem is not given to the search for solutions. We need to "search the spirit", an interior renewal, where the principal inspiration arises from the rediscovery of the transcendence of man. These are the premises that make us ponder on the importance of Love and Hope. If more than 85% of the world's population believes in God, why do we not let His Word guide us? But God is a loving Father. He knows of our confusion and ignorance, which is why with great love, He allows the visits of His Mother to this earth. Experts estimate that in Garabandal (Spain), there were at least 2,500 apparitions between 1961 and 1965. Lamentably they have had an effect only on the hearts of a few people and are lost in the indifferent hearts of the majority, which is why these apparitions are generally unknown. But this Loving Mother "does not tire". She searches for options before the Father, continues to implore for mankind, and it is the Mercy of God that again gives mankind the gift of new wonders. In 1968, in Zeitoun (Egypt), twenty million Muslims saw the Virgin Mary until 1970. Two years later Father Steffano Gobbi received messages from Our Mother, and the Holy Father John Paul II authorized him to travel around the world, founding the "Marian Movement of Priests". Japan has also witnessed similar events. In Akita, Sister Agnes Sasagawa saw the Virgin, and a wooden statue representing Mary cried 101 times. The Bishop of that area, Monsignor Ito, approves of the event, which would later be confirmed by Cardinal Ratzinger in 1990. In 1976, similar apparitions followed in Betania (Venezuela). Bishop Pío Bello Ricardo recognized them as authentic and thousands of people saw the Virgin. But the most intense expression was yet to come. It was on June 24, 1981, in Medjugorje (Bosnia-Herzegovina), that six young people saw the Virgin. Fifteen years have gone by and the phenomenon is repeated every day. More than 22 million people have visited the place and the "fruits are good", millions of converts live the forgiveness and rediscover prayer, the sacraments, the Eucharist. An enthusiastic rebirth of the Christian faith can be seen. Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, the Americas, in other words the whole world, talks of the same subject: "Place God in the center of your lives; He exists, but you have forgotten Him; convert, confess, receive communion, fast, pray, live in love, follow in the footsteps of Jesus; I, His Mother, ask this of you." MESSAGES 1

Yes, it is the voice from Heaven; now no one can hide from this fact. He has come to embrace the world with Love. The proof is eloquent; science has been manifested in such a way that the local authorities of the Catholic Church are recognizing in many places, many apparitions (Akita, Betania, Zeitoun, Naju Korea). The Mother of God and His Son are appearing throughout the world. What is this phenomenon? Another loving answer comes from God. One more attempt to soften and move the hardened hearts of mankind. And these are no longer isolated events; Mary lives on this earth beside her Son every day. They search for free wills; they whisper words of love and mercy inviting conversion - many listen, others do not. This whisper is also heard in Bolivia (South America), this time from the city of Cochabamba, where a woman named Catalina receives messages from Jesus for Bolivia. In them He expresses His Love for Bolivia, seeks the support of His Bolivian sons to spread throughout the world a wonderful movement that He calls: "The Great Crusade Of Love". All of the text that is before you are His Words, dictated to Catalina, the Bolivian woman who talks with God, the woman who has offered herself to Him as a victim soul with the deep desire to follow in His footsteps, she who has generously given her life for the good of Bolivians and of all mankind. Although her experiences are authentic, according to scientific opinion, this criterion does not seek to anticipate the official judgment of the Church authorities, to whom we submit ourselves unconditionally. Our opinion only endeavors to make it easier to understand an experience of love that this time God, in all His kindness, wanted to manifest to an innocent and beautiful world that thirsts for love. What could be better than quenching this thirst with the love of those that brought us the Love of Loves - Jesus and Mary. His Love and Mercy are for you and for those whom you want to reach with these messages.

messages in order to "live" them later on. This mutual understanding will help us to be collaborators in this "Crusade". "... Make haste to send them to the prayer groups that have been formed ... it is the Voice that will have to summon the assembly." It is His wish that the messages should reach the humble, the poor, the imprisoned, the sick, the needy, the religious, and non-religious. "Do not keep My Messages of Love and forgiveness locked up in a drawer ... Speak out, act ... I could make My Messages reach the most remote places of the world and My Angels would be My messengers, as they did so many times with the first books ... but I want your cooperation" (CL-182). He finishes by mentioning that after reading these pages, many will say, "Truly, this is the Son of God". 1. Jesus tells Catalina that only 150 copies are to be printed; for He will make sure that the messages reach the world (CL-183). For this your help is needed. If you have had the grace of receiving one of these volumes, we beg you to do what is possible to make them known to other people ... You can talk to people about them, or if you wish, photocopy the text for other people, who in turn can do the same. 2. "I want everything that I tell you made known" (CL183). "I come to you for a reciprocation of love, to open My Heart like a passionate lover that does not know how to live but for the beloved ... I want to show you My Heart in all its sensitiveness." 3. We are warned: "Take heed, My children, it is the hour of darkness. Satan, jealous, tries to prevent the publication of My Messages; but have confidence. That which is human must mix with the Divine." "It is time to manifest to the world the anguish in My Heart. Do not withdraw from Me. We are in intimate conversation." 4. "You will have to drink with Me some drops from the bitter cup of Gethsemane, tasting the ingratitude of humanity. Since I chose you to be My spokesperson, each day I must mold your heart to conform to Mine. My daughter, there is a great difference between the Heart of your God and that of men. To do what is right, and in return receive nothing but ingratitude ..." (CL-183). "Never displease your God, never troubling your parents is something beautiful" (CL183). 5. The fundamental subjects of the Messages invite us to conversion, prayer, the Rosary, penance, communion, fasting with the body and the soul. But they acquire a splendor for this Crusade, His Messages dedicated to Love and Mercy, Jesus as only Son of the living God, Obedience, Suffering,

Foreword
On January 25, 1996, after 15 days' work, Catalina concludes this "dictation". As the reader can verify (CL-182), Jesus asks His "secretary" to call this manuscript "The Great Crusade of Love". Our Lord justifies the need for this "Crusade" because "the time of charity has turned cold in the world" and considers that "it is time to renew it all..." To help us collaborate with His task, He has dictated to His humble secretary a "text of Love and Mercy" and asks us to study and meditate on these
2 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

Unity. In addition, they include messages for priests and members of religious orders. 6. The task is enormous: He wants to reach the whole world with 150 copies...! If you have received one of them ... will you say yes to Jesus? May God bless and inspire your 'yes' in light of one of His Messages - "He who loves Me ... has My strength!"

I am not going to subject myself to disputes, but I shall humbly accept criticism. I surrender myself to the obedience of the Church, as I have personally manifested. My only desire is to accomplish what my Lord asks of me and for that, I say as my Heavenly Mother said: "I am the handmaiden of the Lord. May Your Word be carried out in me." May the Glory be given to God and no other. For you, with much love, Catalina (Katya Rivas)

Introduction by Catalina
These pages have been written in less than 15 days, since the dictation began on January 6 and concluded on the 25th of the same month, with an 8-day break when I was ill. I do not know how long it took me to write so many pages, almost three notebooks, of about two hundred and three hundred pages. Sometimes I wrote for four straight hours; however, my hand did not get tired. At other times, I would write at night in the darkness, so as not to wake my husband; I asked the Lord to guide my hand and He did. Today, as I conclude the typewritten document, without any help in the correction of style and form, is May 17, 1996, the day on which the Novena to the Holy Spirit begins. Each day, during this period of transcription, when I would sit down to write, I always invoked the Holy Spirit, asking Him to be my guide and that these Messages should not contain a single word of mine. I think the Lord has been so good to me that He has foreseen everything so that I would finish today. I do not know anything about Theology; I am a common and ordinary woman. I was an office clerk, and now a housewife and Secretary of the Lord, as He mentions in some of the Messages. I, unworthy as I am, have suddenly become His secretary... I, who never knew anything about Theology or read the Bible (I shamefully admit this now that I am starting to read it), all of a sudden start to learn of the Love of my God, who is also yours. I, who am a sinner and have been the least adequate person to give testimony of Jesus, all of a sudden see myself writing this introduction ... but take into account that none of the merit is mine! I say humbly: here is the Hand of Love, His infinite mercy, forgiving, healing, raising, but above all, loving. Fundamental teachings reveal to us that the only love that does not lie, does not deceive, does no harm, is His, and He invites us to live that love through the many messages, each one more beautiful than the other.

The Messages
LET US TALK ABOUT LOVE CL-1
1)

6-Jan-96

Jesus

In order for each one of you to progress, My Will must be fulfilled after the soul has managed to overcome certain difficulties predisposed by Me. Think, each one of you, about yourself in the time elapsed since your conversion and do not forget that if I delayed in manifesting My Glory it was because I wanted that manifestation to be much greater. 2) Do you believe that at the age of ten I could not have manifested the wonders that I performed when I was thirty? However, I waited and I diligently prepared in silence until the day appointed by My Father for My presentation. Bear in mind that I talk about Myself as a man, since My example has been necessary for you, and not only that of My Sacrifice on Calvary, but also of My childhood, of My concealment in the little house at Nazareth. I prepared Myself thirty years for only three years of activity. 3) Today this house is that little house at Nazareth. Here, through My beloved daughter, I want to give you your last instructions because you have pleased My Heart with your efforts... I am a God Who is deeply grateful and I recognize the efforts that are made for My greater Glory, just as I contemplate with sorrow the graces that are allowed to slip away since you do not know how to receive them. 4) Open your eyes, look how great the field is in which I am preparing you day by day. I promise you, you will gather from this field all the fruit that I have reserved for you if you remain faithful and steadfast. 5) You, who believe in Me, leave everything to Me, because no one except Me can understand your longing, and no one except Me can appease it, since I gave it to you to call you to certain things. And if I gave you the desire, should I not know how to satisfy it? 6) Say "enough" to your anxieties, calm yourselves,
MESSAGES 3

rest in My Heart, because divine harmony will be revealed if you hear only one heartbeat. 7) I know that I have said enough. As you chirp like a little bird calling to the mother for its much desired food, I have revealed a great deal of your mysteries, of those doubts that darken the mind of man. 8) Let us sit together and talk about the love that I want to give you, since this is the discourse that I always nourish, because you have to grow a lot in love. I tell you this because I have a particular preference for you. 9) I shall help you, yes, of course I shall. But it is so that you will love Me, so that you will grow to the stature that I want to give to you all...

6-Jan-96

Jesus

The soul wants to understand what is contained in those moments of life that I give it. In other words, it wants to know what I expect upon making it pass from one state to another. This desire makes it fall easily into anxiety, which places no small obstacle to My work. 2) I said: Be simple like doves, and this refers to faith in the truths that the Church proposes to all men. But simplicity comes from truth; therefore, he who is simple with respect to My truths is already in truth, step by step, until he obtains the highest level of simplicity that is realized in the unity of the creature and the Creator. That is why the road to simplicity is long and it stops on the day of My call. 3) You talk among yourselves, but without simplicity. In fact, your minds are full of hidden reservations, which in themselves would not be harmful, but they become so because of the non-mortified attachment to things and people. 4) Because of this, you speak without complete simplicity, and, thus, you cannot penetrate and remain in the hearts of your brothers. But rather, every time you behave like this, you gain rejection, sometimes hidden and other times open. 5) I want to tell you that in your minds some of the things, which impede you from penetrating deeper into the spirit of those that listen when you speak of Me, are held firm. And it is urgent that I remove these obstacles, because I see that you have eagerly accepted My proposal that I made some time ago. Therefore, listen to Me. 6) When speaking of Me, use all the words that are suited to what your mind sees at the moment you are speaking. Do not distort things, but rather be satisfied with simply saying what you see. The effort of making your thoughts accessible to the person listen4 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

ing to you is admissible, but if, in spite of that effort, you cannot make yourselves understood, be silent; it is better for you and for the listener. Do not stop your discourse if you see that the listener is becoming inattentive. Persist, stay with them so that you can approach them again as soon as possible... as you are already doing. 7) My child, consider, moreover, that another obstacle in your mind is believing that everyone with whom you speak has your same mentality, but this is not always so. Hold the gifts that I have given you in high esteem, so that you will guard them zealously. These gifts are the fruit of My Love for you, and they will be your crown and joy. 8) Another obstacle in your mind represents the digressions to which you are subject because of the sinful life you led when you were in the company of the evil one on the path to hell. These are the very best occasions to strike with wisdom the tempter who always returns ever more violent. Wisdom, in these particular cases, lies in you to give to you and Satan the clearest and fastest rejection. But I do not insist on this because I have already instructed you. I point this out in order to enumerate all the obstacles in your mind, obstacles that oppose themselves to a complete simplicity, which is what I want of you. 9) Speak of what I manifest to your intelligence, without listening to comments on the contrary. Furthermore, I shall show you that My Love assures the effectiveness of your words. 10) Simple like a dove, fly to the center of where you find life; fly dove, transformed by the care of the most tender of lovers; fly and get here where the Triune Love holds and embraces His little loves. Be good as love is; but be wise as wisdom is, so that one and the other may have in you the pleasure of the Father's eternal joy. Praise, My dove, the eternity of righteousness that our adored Father has given Me; praise with Me the eternity of Love that the Holy Spirit has given Me, because in exalting My Humanity, it has made you and all who love Me, truly in My image; that is, it has sanctified you. 11) Bless, swift and bright dove, the eternal Love, and bless Him forever, because forever He has blessed you; forever He has made you His. 12) Lift up a Hymn to our Mother, she who stands up to the devil in order to save you from his instigation. Bless her also because among all of her children, you, deprived of her help, would truly be one of the worst. Love your Mother Most High dearly, and love her as I teach you, hour by hour; that is to say, considering her first of all as My Mother. Did you know that all Heaven smiles when you praise her just because she is My Mother?

Fly, dove, to Mary's side. And you, My Mother, take this dove to the arms of the Eternal, infinite Love desired by her.

TELL ME IF YOU, AT LEAST, WANT MY LOVE CL-3

6-Jan-96

Jesus

Humanity is long-suffering, and I shall show it salvation. Man must not seek peace on earth if at first he has not found the road to Heaven. 2) I want to be benevolent to all of My lost or missing brothers, so that they might return sincerely to Me, for I am anxious to give Myself to them in order to save them from the infernal claws. When I see only one act of good faith, who could detain the Love that I bring to human beings? I came to earth only to bring them Love. 3) Live loving and you will rescue Me from so many offenses, from so many insults, and so much ingratitude that come to My Heart from every corner of the earth. I do not ask you for much, only that you love Me and live for Me, because I love you and I have lived, died, and I live for you. You will know the heartbeat of My Love and hear My voice and, together with one and the other, you will learn how you should love Him who is purely Love. From My Heart will sprout a fountain of happiness that no one will be able to snatch away from you, and do not let it affect you if there is no one to hear you. I know full well how deaf the ears of man are and how he confuses what best helps him with the false doctrines of love. This century will not pass without the world knowing the evil it has committed. 4) O children, return to Me! I shall be Life for you, you will find in Me what, until now, you thought you could find on earth. I shall not remind anyone of, nor reproach them for the evil they have done, but rather I shall hug and kiss all those who believe in My Love. 5) Who could refuse to recognize the fire of Love in My Heart? Who will deny Me that soul for whom I suffered so much here on earth? 6) O My creatures, love Me and I shall glorify you. Do not be timid nor cowards before Me. I want to make you aware of how that cry which I sent forth from the Cross: "I am thirsty" came from the very depths of My soul. 7) I am thirsting to make you humble in order to give you the treasure that in vain you will seek outside of Me. Do you not see how My Words burn with so much ardor, to the point that I show that I need you, while you have need of Me? Where is he who loves Me and why do so few listen to Me? 8) Tell Me, if you at least want My Love... I shall pay

you by giving you more longing. I know what your heart wishes, and I shall satisfy it fully by giving it the fullness of love without a shadow of concern or fear. I shall not hide from your eyes; you will see Me and will enjoy the ardor of lovers. But, in the meantime, burn all the impurities; accept the works that I fulfill in your soul, and with confidence abandon yourself in Me...

TAKE PART IN ALL OF MY LIFE CL-4
1)

6-Jan-96

Jesus

The soul is incited to love Me when I show it the beauty of the object of its search. It is necessary that I build a refuge for each one of you where you can find Me and recognize Me. Many follow false ideals and are always eager for the good that escapes them, because of the delusions with which they fill their minds and hearts. I allow Myself to be found, I manifest Myself to those who rid their souls of vices and defects, of selfishness and pride. No one will know the truth if he does not abandon that which is false. 2) I speak to you through created things. I attract you to Me, because I am the Light who gives sight to the blind. I am the good that satisfies. Do not search for reality in distractions, because they are smoke that disappears, and this one lasts forever. He who wants Me, clear the path, prepare the land. I shall make it fruitful. 3) (Without You, Lord, we cannot do it) 4) Certainly, you cannot do anything without Me, and your word is the result of My two wills: Mine and yours. However, I expect more from those to whom I give more, and if I give less, I am happy with less. 5) Do not think that because of this I do not give to all an abundance of gifts with which you can do pleasing things for Me. I do not look at whom I make My gifts; it is My Love that drives Me. And everyone shares these gifts, without which not only would you return to nothing, but you would never be able to receive mercy and forgiveness, like those who are condemned. They lie in the most horrible of prisons - the one of rebellion. And why? Because in life they were guided and driven by all kinds of vices. Many times I wanted to bring them to Me! They fled, making use of their own will - My supreme gift. 6) Remember that each one of them is an example of what man is capable of without Me. Be assured that not one of them is condemned without his willingness and, just think, Divine Justice has not even cried out against them with the severity they well deserve. I am just, and I appease justice with My Mercy. My Love is sufficient unto itself without needing to live MESSAGES 5

except by its own life and own love. They do not, nor will they ever, love Me. Yes, you will love Me. I have set My eyes on you since the beginning of time, even before anyone had been created. I share with you My sorrows because you are truly Mine, and what is Mine, takes part in all of My Life - sorrows now, glory in Heaven.

IF ONLY I HAD A FAITHFUL CREATURE CL-5
1)

6-Jan-96

Jesus

If I had a faithful creature on whom to pour the fullness of My Love, I would make of her an ember by which I would set fire to humanity. 2) When I say a faithful creature I mean one that is very much in love with Me, and one in whom My Love may make its abode. I want to raise souls like that, and I will raise them in spite of the unleashing of the kingdom of ruin. And their eyes will see things never before seen and they will be amazed to see how I manifest My power. 3) How many saints in Heaven will be overjoyed by the splendid victory that My Church will achieve. Hell demands to be able to initiate the great battle, but it will not be able to do so without My permission. And definitely, whatever it does will be for its dishonor and fury. 4) The Father has given Me everything, and I can dispose of what I want and how I want. I will be the One to take from the claws of Hell whoever I wish and whoever consents to My call.

do not tire because I want My creature to accept My outpouring of Beauty, Goodness, and Love. 4) Who could not recognize the work that I have entrusted to the one that I most loved on earth, and is now the Queen of all the Angels and saints? 5) Know, little children, that protecting My faithful ones and guiding them down the road of virtue in present day trials has been entrusted to Her. 6) She will be listened to, but unfortunately not by everyone, and in recognition to whoever may do what I did in Nazareth, he will be confirmed in grace. Today it is not recognized, but soon you shall see in the world that you are My children. 7) The power I had as a Man, I give to My followers so that they will prevail in the fight and, in prevailing, give testimony of Me, not with words, but with deeds. It is time to show that only he who knows how to give even his own life for Me, truly believes. Whoever believes in Me, loves Me; and whoever loves Me, has My strength.

WHOEVER LOVES ME, HAS MY STRENGTH CL-6
6-Jan-96 Jesus

1) From Heaven I send My riches to all creatures, and each one receives them in the necessary proportion to the manifestation of the beauty and goodness of My Father, of the Divine Spirit, and Mine, because in this manner We want to manifest the Glory from which We have life in common. The creature receives so much, as much as I want to give, and is satisfied in the continuous enjoyment of the gifts reserved for him. 2) But it happens that, upon lacking the appropriate dispositions for this enjoyment, the Divine Love must detain its flow, and so the soul, no longer faithful, feels discontent, becomes agitated, and believes that it cannot obtain that which it felt it should possess. 3) This is helpful for the light that is of intelligence, and also for the love that is of the will. To this I apply a remedy with successive deeds of Grace, and I

I seek souls that will understand Me. Without them, without My loved ones, I do not act; if they accept Me, My Word will be fulfilled. 2) I thirst for those who offend Me, and I want them to find out about their faults, because one of the principal faults that distances them from Me is ignorance. They do not know what helps or harms them. They have hardened their hearts in such a way that they have become like a rock over which the ocean waves pound. My poor loved ones, what will they do without Me? Who will take them out of their misery? I shall do it together with those who love Me. 3) For that reason I ask you to be glad if I have asked you to help Me. Do you realize how great the pressure is around My Heart? Contemplate the multitude of wanderers who allow themselves to be blindly driven to ruin. 4) I, with mortal sadness, saw them in the Garden of Olives the night of My Passion. For them I covered Myself with shame in front of My Father, and He Himself, at the height of My affliction, wanted to comfort Me through His infinite Mercy, by which I also was sacrificed. 5) My little daughter, contemplate how everyone has made a mess of Me, treating Me like a leper in front of My Father! My greatest wounds are these, which you see adhered to My Soul. These are the wounds of men that I have loved and love, until making Me believe that I am a demented being.

THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

And now follow My Life, do not worry about yourself because this does not help you. I shall provide for you so that through My Love you can provide for your brothers. 7) I tell you again. I have thought of you; may you think of Me and of those whom I love.

FATHER, INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMEND MY SPIRIT CL-8
1)

6-Jan-96

Jesus

It would be better to lose everything than to forget one wish of Mine. 2) I want you to repeat to whomever I call My chosen ones that what I constantly did on earth was only one thing: the Will of My Father. Everything I did was because He wanted it done. That is why He gave testimony of Me saying: "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am pleased." 3) The goal, then, must be clear so that the premises will be clear. Work in union with Me to give Me the pleasure of expanding, and diffusing Myself as I wish and because I wish. The fulfillment of My wishes will be hard at times, but I, Myself, place the difficulties in order to affirm the love, and to be able to glorify all of you in Heaven. 4) When I said, "My Father, into Your hands I commend My Spirit," I did so because My Father wished it. But whoever possesses the light, knows that My Spirit was totally in His hands, since the instant in which Gabriel gave My most beloved Mother the announcement of My Incarnation. 5) I want you to learn from Me, because Heaven must be populated with a multitude of blessed ones that will be in My image. This is My living wish because it is the same Will of the Father and of Love, and carried out like this, My Humanity will be honored. My Father wants to reproduce the image of His Son by which His infinite mastery and Love are at the disposal of mankind. 6) He wants this and you will be My joy if you allow yourselves to be molded in My image. Do it, if you love Me; do it, if you truly want to be like Me.

will find that being humble is worthy of human nature. Contrary to what is believed now, man will have to concern himself a lot with the knowledge of his misery and will praise Me for having led him to recognize the truth. 2) Do the children who are present know that soon they will have to reexamine somewhat their presumptuous judgment against My Church? Do they know that the hammer with which they hit the Church is heavy only because of their insolence? Do they believe they have the virtue of judging without error? Who can prevent Me from eliminating from earth Satan's friends who act as masters?... A little while longer and they will have My answer, which will be harsh, but as a matter of fact, I shall not frighten My people because they will have the joy of seeing the tare cut and burned. They tempt Me, and challenge Me. How will they resist the storm that will break them up forever?

The days reserved for the estate that I acquired with My Blood, spilled for Love, will be divine days. Days in which the answers to present day controversies will be found, and in which man will be transformed from being arrogant to being humble, and he

My husband, of whom I had so many proofs of special affection, does not truly recognize the virtues God gave him. But I knew him in the course of many adversities and could always admire the way he faced them. What patience in My Joseph! And what adoration for Jesus! He did not seem to be a father in our little house, but rather, His most faithful disciple since he was the first man who received instruction, guidance, and consolation from Him. 2) He was a creature full of God, so full that he accepted, bore, and prevailed over the trials that are given to the chosen ones of pure Love. Ah! My husband was greater than a Seraph, higher than Michael, and purer than all the souls that shone, and will shine after Me. 3) He put so much care in protecting Me from the persecution triggered by Herod. And remember how perseveringly he watched over Me, while he could have accused Me as a common traitor. 4) The Joseph who worked as a carpenter is not important, although he did so in an exemplary manner. The great Joseph you must see is as the disciple of Jesus, well hidden but sublime. 5) Sometimes it is believed that the peace in our little house was fruit of a special grace that the Father gave us, without considering that this peace was not only grace, but also a day-to-day conquest! 6) You only know the street door of the house, but coming closer, you will see that each step causes fatigue, and no one climbs up without an effort. Because of that, the graces we received were the fruit of our MESSAGES 7

most Holy Son's generous Love, but occurred with full detachment of ourselves; otherwise, what could My Jesus' reward in Heaven be? 7) Joseph was pure, it is said and this is true, but I wish to add something about his purity. It equals chastity, but My husband's purity had a special fragrance: it was a purity that could and can be very close to Mine. It can be represented by a large handful of irises cultivated in a field surrounded by roses; that is, it was a purity that had for a horizon the most holy love that a husband could nourish for his wife. 8) If men wanted to, they could be saved from many blemishes by turning to Joseph. It would suffice if they asked him from the bottom of their hearts to shield them from all impurities in order to honor the acts of purity with which he treated me, his wife.

Jesus

He who has entered My fold can leave it, only if he opposes My Will. But if he listens to My Words and delays in carrying them out, he is not left out, because those who are outside the fold are those who hurt Me with grave fault. 2) Your absence is proportionate to the intensity of the emotions that depend only on Me. If at times, reason tells you the contrary of all that your emotions witness, you must not be surprised. These are the ways in which I wish to guarantee the good results at all costs. The simpler you are, the more you will please Me. But if you think that I can go against your reason because of the pity I feel, you are mistaken. What does man do if he follows My advice? It is simple, he imitates Me and I give him good testimony saying: “I do all things that please My Father and speak what I hear from Him.” 3) O hidden meaning of My Words! How can man be just if he does not listen to Me? And what justice can please Me if not the one that I have said? Human reasons do not completely come up to the divine ones, and nothing is wanted by Me without first having foreseen the consequences to everything. 4) Grow and you will see that no man lives without My impulse. You cannot resist this impulse, neither by lack of love nor by foolishness, thus making useless the feeling that I give. 5) The trouble that you experience is good, because it is born of the stimulus of the brotherly love that I have given you and I do not take it away, because you please Me this way - troubled because of My Love. Peace is yours and you know that peace comes from Me.
8 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

I have given My Life and My Blood to men - the Blood to wash them, and My Life to resuscitate them. 2) The Passion in My Soul could not be expressed without lessening its magnitude, but I speak of it to encourage you to consider it, to make you penetrate into My secrets so that you may remain My prisoners and derive My benefits. 3) I wish I could save My children all suffering, if in this way it would help them, and it would be enough for Me to have endured suffering for their love. But I cannot hide My Passion; on the contrary, I must ignite it in those who wish to please Me in the accepted way of love. 4) My daughter, love of My pains, trust Me. I take care of My souls and I always direct them to what I have promised, to the things for which each one must give the payment of love. You are united to Me in a state of adhesion to My Will and this pleases Me. But that is not all that I want, because I wish you to be like putty in which I will imprint all that My ardent Heart wishes. 5) Listen to My love-hungry cry that reverberates. This cry comes from My exhausted chest, and it renews itself more or less according to the correspondence that it finds in many souls chosen with preference by Me. 6) What do you seek in your intelligence; what do you seek groping in the darkness that surrounds you? In the meantime would you like for Me to give form to My Words? Do you not realize that you are My companion in the Garden? And as such, no one will see you, not even yourself. 7) Great Wisdom, infinite Love moves Me and you, flower of My Passion and love of My pains, and feeds what I inspire in you, without fear and without consideration to any consequences, because My example should serve you as a perfect model in your life. I was alone with the Father, and so alone that I experienced the maximum confusion. You will please Me if you remain in solitude with Me without

any support. This suffering of yours is a part of the trial of which I spoke to you. Offer it to the Father to console Me. Each day we shall make an offering. Start with Me.

than the worst tyrant is the devil that tries to subjugate the greatest possible number of souls, with astuteness and deceits. He wants to have a kingdom in which, without being seen, he would be heard willingly and not by force as it happens in his reign of hate, fury and discord. 2) He wants vainly to snatch away from Me the power that My Father has given Me and of which I am very jealous. He takes pleasure in the acquiescence of humans and he boasts of this among his own. 3) It is necessary that you know better the purposes of the sower of discord so as to be able to confront him and beat him. It is necessary to see in the tempter the procedure that distinguishes him among all the sinners, in order to give him the lesson he deserves. And I listen to you attentively when you ask for refuge and strength to combat the filthy one, the lying detractor of My power. 4) Know, children, that in guiding you, having some contact with the enemy is necessary because I want to unite you to Myself in combat with him, so that later I can glorify you as conquerors of he who hates Me. If these combats were not given, My work of Love would not be complete; therefore, it is not necessary to have fear. Confidence in Me and fear, not of Satan, but of yourselves – this is enough to obtain the victory. 5) Know that there does not exist a greater disgrace for him, plague and condemnation from Heaven, than seeing himself beaten by any person. Having experienced such defeats, he always comes back for his satanic pleasure of making war, destroying what I have given to men with so much generosity. 6) If he would not put obstacles, one could stay longer in the state of Grace. But by My giving him permission, the rebel would like to split My structures, without taking into consideration that I, many times, serve Myself of his work in order to take a soul to the opposite of what he has schemed. 7) He who laments over the work of the evil one, must be aware of these aspects:  he would not be better than Satan if I abandoned him to himself;  and the fact that I would have a human

experience is a very major reason to accept, as desired by God, the annoyances of Lucifer or of his perfidious comrades of disgrace. 8) Do not be terrified, have fear, or uncertainty, but rather have a firm confidence in My power, and I shall make you participants of My Wisdom to defeat our common enemy. You do not see him, but he is present and being astute, he presumes to be what he is not, but I dominate and I defeat him, and one look from Me makes him run far away. 9) I tell you today and when it happens, every word of Mine will confirm how much I love you and how I seek to protect you in all things…

want to make you all in My image; however, you do not care to accept My promises of righteousness. What do I intend by proposing that you be like Me? Maybe you do not want to understand that this is possible only at the cost of a will that does not turn back, but rather that hangs on tightly to My Will. 2) You understand it a little and you tire; you attempt and then become indifferent. And I am seeing how My child obeys My directions, but without having the joy of seeing them advance in My Will, without enjoying the happiness of giving them My resemblance, My beauty, My strength: Me. 3) If you obeyed, you would always feel peace. There is no illusion in this, there cannot be, I tell you, because to do My Will, contradicting your own is the sure way to lose your bad habits and to cover yourself with eternal beauty, for this is My Will. 4) What do you say when doing a thousand thoughtful acts and not a single one the one I want? Do you get lost in the maze of your own love? 5) Oh, how many times you rush to follow the impulses of old habits rooted in the passionate love that you have for yourselves! 6) Advancement means to go forth, to elevate oneself over the past. Therefore, to advance means to have new knowledge of good, of love, new experiences of divine life, new knowledge of the roots of pride. You must advance in goodness, and for that reason, it is necessary to descend until the point that you want to hold onto My Divine Providence. 7) This is not fair? Do you not think it is a holy thing to know evil so that you can run away from it? Here is your confusion. If the evil is of anyone who is not yourselves, it is easy to admit it; it is difficult to admit that knowledge of oneself. MESSAGES 9

My poor friends, how upset you are! Do you not think that My Heart burns to see you like this? Take courage, do not be afraid to contradict yourselves; indulge yourselves with My Divine Love; you will be certain and in peace, and nothing will disturb you. I want this of you: that you earnestly accept My Word of encouragement, and that you not close your souls in the face of difficulties. Do you believe Me? Believe in Me Who experienced for you the greatest bitterness so that I could give you certainty of victory! 9) And so, do not get discouraged, do not inquire into what color your cross is, it is a cross and that is enough. Even more, be grateful to Me for every cross, because with this I give clear demonstration of the greater good that I want for you.
8)

My friends, these words announce battles but not defeats; you will see on the day that I make the sun shine over the tempest, the light over the darkness. 4) My help is constant and will have marvelous results. O friends, listen to the cry that says: “death to sin, not the sinner…!”

Enemies who rage against My beloved Church have insulted Me in the same way as when they insulted Me in front of Pilate. Today they accuse My Church of the corruption of temporal power. Today they have placed in the scales of their atrocious politics, the slander that will cause ample defamation to My Spouse. I am not watching passively, I take from the enemies much of their boldness, so as to destroy that mud which they would like to make penetrate the mystical body of the believers. 2) My people do not take notice of this because I preserve them from many things, but if they knew them all, they would allow Me for sheer human fright. But he who knows, must be vigilant.
10 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

1) The flowers of the Celestial spring open up and diffuse their divine perfume, giving the air that surrounds them a silent share of the qualities that each one has. This wonder, this spectacle of the souls that works hidden in My Will, is beautiful. 2) Accustomed as men are to the stench of sins, which infects their atmosphere, they do not pay attention to, or better, they do not have that spiritual sense that perceives those Heavenly perfumes which I deposit in their souls. But the product that I obtain from it is great, and much more powerful than the evil caused by sin. 3) You usually reflect on mundane things. When will you reflect over Celestial things? You have been called to the life of the spirit. And why do you materialize even the things that are not things, but rather only spirit? 4) I gave you spring; nevertheless, its flowers have a short life. I gave you the perfumes of the flowers and they also pass, but not as soon as the flowers from which they come. In everything I have left something that testifies to the invisible, and this is what matters the most and gives assurance of future and also present life. What is a rose bud? Is it only what you see and nothing more? 5) It is the intricate workings of wisdom that gives vitality to the creatures through which the breath of My Life has passed over. What is the perfume of a flower? Is it only one thing that recreates the sense of smell?… It is in fact, a diffusing of ignored vitality that I have put in all plants as a testimony of My Spirit that infuses existence – life. 6) My souls who receive as a gift the “flower of Heaven”, do you know that you carry the perfumes of the divine flower? Think; think well about this. I do not send you pollen to fertilize you, because you receive the whole flower that wants to reproduce itself in you so that new flowers will adorn the eternal flower and all together may send to the Divinity the gracious perfume of the principal flower. Also, you are not experienced with nor do you know, but I do not stop working on your blindness until reaching the transformation that I have wanted

Large meadow, flowery countryside of souls in which I gently place My gaze. Little flowers of Mine, if you could see My work, I tell you, you would go out of your mind with love and would not bring up certain difficulties of yours. 8) If you, little flower, wish to make a crown of the eternal flower, let Me take care of you, because I am a gardener without equal.

Jesus

Write and do not worry. All that comes from Me is good. Do you not understand what you write soon after? Do you know why? Look at the pen. For Me you are the pen that I move making you trace the symbols which express My Words. At the beginning you do not know, but I make you capable of explaining what before you did not know. Nevertheless, you are not totally unskillful, because while I move you, I also depend on your intelligence, but I only depend on you because this is the way I wish it. 2) It is true that My Words take on the color of the spirit that receives them, just like the pen that can write in red, black, or blue, according to the ink of those colors. Although the relationship between the colors may remain, it is always nothing in comparison with the words that, in one color or another, the pen writes on the paper. In this way, the Word is Mine; the color is yours. But I am the arm that moves the pen that in all colors will always say what I want. 3) Will they understand the reasoning – those who should understand it? I do this, precisely for them. And you, what do you say? What do you fear? You fear the same thing; I know it. You fear the enemy; I understand it. But hold firmly to My guarantee because I cannot go back on My Word. 4) Two days ago you tore up some papers. This is an example of what you do when I do not assist you. The writing you did not understand was dictated by Me. I told you of the high objectives in which tranquility is supreme, but you became confused because I was speaking of wanting to repeat Myself in you and I was telling this to you with a certain amount of

I shall save them in great part, because I know My creatures and I know how to make them Mine. 3) Now they are in battle because the light approaches. They are still not able to seek acceptance of the truth, that is why they escape Me and I allow them to do so, but later I shall give the command and they will turn docile. I will go through the earth and My Spirit will spread. Oh, then, man will weep and I will gather their precious tears. 4) Cast the hook and do not retrieve it. Spread My seed because it will give fruit. I preached to all with the certainty that the Father would do what was necessary and appropriate for His glory, and I did not stop preaching, knowing in anticipation the effect that would ensue. I was the object of mockery, but not humiliated, because whoever condemns the error will not feel humiliated by the truth spoken, since I do not permit it. And if, as a result of the truth, My beloved ones suffer persecutions, not even then will they be humiliated, but rather they will shine like many suns in front of My Father.

Once again, if it were necessary, I would give My life to save My children from this fake pretense before My Spouse on earth.

YOUR MISSION: TO BRING THE WORLD CLOSER TO MY EUCHARISTIC HEART AND THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MY MOTHER CL-22

9-Jan-96

Jesus

You are poor of word but your hand guided by Mine knows how to record what the Spirit dictates and your heart hears. That is your mission for now: knowing how to write what I am telling you. If your voice were allowed to be heard, who would pay attention to you? Eloquent people were heard and later forgotten. Your voice would be just another sound. 2) What your hand writes, guided by Mine, will remain. Repeated and amplified by other voices, it will fill the earth, reminding that I am, that the reign of My Heart will not be kept waiting. 3) Remain ignored, humble, hidden, absolutely obedient to My Will, and in submission to perform for the good of humanity. 4) When the sufferings come, think that even though you perceive My absence, I will never be closer to you than in those moments. And if you feel your heart grow weak, abandon it into My hands, knowing that these hands will give you the necessary fortitude. 5) If you feel tedium and discomforted by complying with what I arrange, take away the worthless matter of your displeasure because if you truly want to possess Me, you must accept the unpleasantness that I have destined for you on earth. And know also that, while you live attached to the earth, you have to live off the land. 6) It is well that you wish to think only in loving Me, and that I am also in all that forms life and your desires and your duties. In them you will always have motives to serve Me and advance in My Love. 7) My Mother, as yourself, lived in this world, working, watching over the good of her people, praying… And though her soul elevated towards God in each instant of her life, she did not for one moment leave the path of the Divine Will. She knew how to harmonize the cares and troubles of the world, in a way that they all formed a hymn of gratitude to Divinity. 12 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

With her heart full of bitterness at the thought of My future, she knew how to hide it in her soul and to make life enjoyable for the rest. 8) Being destined to be the Queen of the Angels and the universe, she lived hidden, ignored and humble because she had God with her and that was enough for her. 9) Try then, My daughter, to follow the example that I have traced, and continue in a withdrawn life a while longer. Your only wish must be to please Me always. 10) Before you existed, I already loved you. I saw your loves and ungratefulness, but I wanted you for Me. I want you detached, separated from every thought that is not of Me; not even to a thought of some merit of how much you have done for Me. I must be your supreme and only good. 11) Poverty carried with dignity will make you, and with you, yours, to be more like Me and My Mother when we were on earth. And My eyes will contemplate you joyfully because in this way you conform your life to Mine, to the image of My Heart. 12) Consecrate yourself to the care of your home; I do not want anything else for now. Keep getting closer to the fire of My Heart, bring yours also, so that they will come to love Me as I love them. 13) Each soul has its mission on this earth; yours is of love, sacrifice. Your mission is to draw the world closer to the only thing that will be able to save it: My Eucharistic Heart and the Immaculate Heart of My Mother.

LOVE IS TO SUBMIT CL-23
9-Jan-96 Jesus

1) O soul of Mine, you have hidden yourself in My Passion. How sweet it is to your Savior to sing your victory! You are blood of My Blood, life of My Life, even more so, you are precisely the cause of My Victory. I remained hung on the Cross, not for My glory, but for the glory of My Father. I gave all of Myself for His happiness, and His happiness is the conquest of those whom He had lost. Thus I sing your victory, that is to say, for the glory of the Father, since I live and glorify each instant the Life and the Glory of He who sent Me to you. 2) Everyone know: I love nothing more than to please My Father. That is why I shall glorify all who will make Him happy, because in that joy is the Divine Life that goes from the Father to the Son, and return from the Son to the Father through the Spirit of Love. 3) Love Me; love Me greatly, My daughter. Think of

loving as renouncing your own will, renouncing and giving yourself to your loved one, suffering for him however much is necessary, for that love that he gives. 4) To love is to submit, to make oneself so small until allowing oneself to be stepped on, and to be spurned even by the most despicable creature, if that should be the case. To love is to put oneself in the last place, renouncing even one’s own merits and to bear without reproach, that unjustifiably others appropriate, and doing it for the loved one, to merit his love. 5) I did this. I did good; I helped the needy; I raised the dead, and I had nothing more than disloyalty and ungratefulness for recompense. 6) Love Me, give of yourself completely and voluntarily. Suffer with Me, and also resist that pain. Will you not want to do it? The world deliberately throws itself into the abyss, without accepting the help that My Heart offers. Afterwards it will cry and despair; humanity will groan under the deserved lashing. 7) One must atone and pray because the punishment will come; but if you might do penance, the souls would entrust themselves to My Heart. 8) I promise in the tenderness and greatness of My Love, to save men from the rigor of Divine Justice, taking them to a secure port, where neither terror nor death can hurt them... Suffer, atone with Me.

Mary

you know, My daughter, that what I did when knowing the Will of God was to overwhelm Myself with His grandeur? I would think about that same Truth. I would think about and meditate on God. I would think about Him and love Him, and in loving Him, I understood and accepted how much of that Truth could overtake Me. 2) I accepted that His Will be done in Me, accepting by it whatever the good, great and painful I would have to bear; adapting My wish to His and becoming one with Him. 3) I thought about Him, loved Him, and served Him. And even though the knowledge of the future filled My soul with bitterness, no one realized it because at the same time it was happiness, since it came from the hands of He, who being My Son, was at the same time My God, My beloved Lord. 4) The knowledge of that truth, while overwhelming Me, exalted Me at the same time, because it lifted itself up to the Divine Will, making Me helpful for the good that would arise over all men. 5) And so, little daughter, to be chosen is an infinite gift that also carries an inevitable and painful duty, for it is to renounce being for oneself and to lose oneself in the hands of God.

My daughter, love of My Passion, sacrifice yourself, pray, because humanity needs sacrifices, prayers, charity. You should be content when the Spouse gives you the gift of nailing you to His Cross… Accept all that comes from My hand, as hard and hurtful as it may be. Remember, of the souls I love who are nailed to My Cross, I destine them to rejoice in the infinite sweetness of love, of that love for the One through which they knew to reject all earthly joy. 2) (Lord, take me in Your arms, never separate me from Your heart…) 3) You do not know…daughter. If you are in My arms while you are on earth, you will have to suffer as I suffered. If I squeeze you in them, the pain will be deeper, more atrocious, and your sorrows will be a reflection of what I suffered. Do you think you will be able to endure them? 4) (I do not care, Lord, what I can or cannot suffer if I am in your arms. I only know that I shall suffer happily what You wish to give me because I shall suffer for You.)

Me, the miseries of men are the best occasions to prove My omnipotence to them. If the sinner lies prostrated because of his faults, how can I better show him love and power if he moves to desist from sin? Love, because easily I will forgive him; power, because I transform the repugnant one into beauty, and the bad one to good. And of this love, you can give good testimony. 2) Oh, how beloved you are to Me! I wanted to die for you and I would die again to be able to glorify you next to Me. You form part of a selected group of companion souls of My Passion. And the closer you come to Me, the more you will be tempted; and the more you triumph, the more gifts I shall give you. What more could I give you who struggles only to please Me, while nearly everyone surrounds Me to seek his own interests? Oh, how little they are like Me, the souls who think only of their own gains! 3) You must understand that My sacrifice was total, that is, a benefit, since from eternity I possess Happiness in essence and My glorified Humanity the same.
MESSAGES 13

You cannot add anything to the infinity of My joy, but in an incidental manner. 4) Do you see how far you have come? Well, I guided you, I moderated you, I conquered you, I stopped you, and I pushed you towards Me. And if I had not done all this, you would now be one of My worst creatures. On the other hand, with My gift of Love, you have become a jewelry case, to which many will have access. Do not suffer, as you are now doing. I order you to write because I am the one who had arranged it in order to confuse those who being fools, think they are wise.

Even if every heart would turn hard, I would always continue to be equally sweet with My creatures.

Nevertheless, the doctrines that I wanted for humanity when it was but a child still continue. But then, should men always remain young children? No, they should grow and comprehend. 3) The language of My Son changed all the past, and wanting to remain in the old while including listening to the new, signifies not only to not comprehend the new, but also not having the light to see in the old the seed of the new. 4) Children, like the valiant ones, reconstruct and revise your knowledge; this is an act of humility that is enough for Me to be able to open for you the golden door to My palace.

They came tenderly to your eyes at the thought of Me. When
14 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

you went to a theater to see a representation of My Passion, I collected your tears on the tip of one finger and I would take them to My lips. When whatever would come over you, you would abandon yourself to My Will without reproach, being grateful for the pain; and for Me you forgave and distanced yourself from the resentment. Through all that My eye lovingly followed you when it seemed that I had abandoned you. My hand held you even though you did not feel its pressure. In one way or another, I tried to call you to the right path; I reminded you that you belonged to Me, that My Heart awaited the reflections of your heart which was turning into hard stone. 5) In the same peril, contemplating your deafness to My voice, I protected you. My poor little one, like a dove searching for the true light, you confused it with foolish fires. The pureness of your intentions and the eagerness to love spiritually, took you by erroneous paths, without thinking that it was throwing immaculate white flowers into muddy puddles. 6) The sacrifices that you will now make in My memory, were then relief to My saddened Heart… There is no time nor space in the things of Heaven. I want your thoughts to come quickly towards Me, considering yourself with Me in My painful path. This way I will not be so alone and I will feel the comfort of your company. When the one who suffers is near someone who loves and shares in her heart, her company and even her silence is enough to console him. So, My daughter, even if you only tell Me that you love Me, I know what love there is in your soul. 7) Plead for all those souls that are being attacked and tortured, so that they will know how to resist the pain and torture, and the horrendous solitude in which they find themselves. Plead for those battling between life and death, doubt and certainty, and flattery and lies against their feelings of confidence in Me and My eternity; debilitated by long days of physical and moral sufferings... without hearing one word of encouragement, without being able to receive the sacraments, and without being able to unburden themselves of their immense pain. 8) These souls suffer for Me as I suffered for them, but strength is missing from many of them in the trial; they are weak and could succumb. It is necessary to pray much for them so that they will not give in to their pain and sorrow, to not lose hope, and to know that their weakness is what assures them everlasting glory. 9) The sacrifices that are asked of you are caresses of God, just as the paintbrush is happy in the hands of the artist. It knows that the beauty that blossoms under its strokes is not its own work.

My daughter, love of My pains, let Me nail you with Me on My Cross… I need for you to be thus nailed for love.

I want to tell you what God is, to the extent that you can conceive Him. 2) God is eternal and from His eternity, being Father, He has in Himself His Son, who is also eternal. From the unity of the Father and the Son, lives the Holy Spirit that is the Love of both, the three forming one Divinity. 3) One is, then, His Will, His power, and one His Mercy. This unity in Love is always directed to the only end, which is God. Immense in His simplicity, filling all that exists, penetrating it all, living in everything and in everything encompassing the distance, dominating all the spaces… 4) God is Light and with it He illuminates everything created. God is Life, for from Him beings have received it. God is Love and because of that Love, the Son became man; and with His Blood rescued humanity that offends Him, repaying Him for this incomparable sacrifice with hatred and incredible offenses. 5) Even though God is a person, He is not a creature. His essence is life itself, all life takes life out of His very essence. Some of this has been given to you to contemplate; but the human eye cannot see more than God permits. 6) God, center and cause of all things, who encloses unto Himself the most perfect unity and from whose unity all that, which coming from that center that is God Himself, is unified in this same beginning: the contemplation of this ineffable mystery that God gives to those who love Him till the end. 7) Now, daughter, many roads lead to God, but none as sure as humility. God, He Himself humanized, became humble to die crucified. I Myself was exalted to Mother of God for loving humility. 8) No creature can boast of the good that may be in her nor of the potential of her mind because, being a creature of God, to Him she owes what she is, how much she has; therefore, only He should be addressed as the supreme and only end. 9) Make an effort to always be humble and simple, and you shall have God with you and in you. Let Him do with you as He wishes, so that you will always be able to be sure that it is for your well-being.

My dear star, what is a small ray of light in the mind of man? It is a particle of Divinity. Even the lowest man and the most wretched one receive from Me innumerable rays of light because I always assist them, and I always diffused, not withstanding the darkness that opposes Me. If I proceed like this with the most wretched man, what can be said of the lighting of My Divinity in the chosen souls? I help them. In My work I have My sights set mainly in the level of love that I want to give, so much that each one cannot understand how by illuminating I bring warmth and, between fire and light I weave together mind and heart almost at the same instant. 2) So, may the light shine on the bad ones, and the good ones, to all according to My infinite kindness. What do I accomplish with this? Scorn on one side, and indifference on the other. To the reluctant ones I increase the light attracting them to Me, to the faithful ones, because of that, all My warmth as a compensation for the indifferent and the unbelievers. 3) A time will come in which darkness will reign on earth like a whirlpool because the group of My true faithful ones is small. Even then My work will not fail because, rather, on account of the greater darkness, I shall diffuse more light, and happy the one who believes. 4) I have cried over Jerusalem that did not know the hour of My visit. Now you will cry for Me. How I have shed tears and sighs for My people! Do you love Me? Well, then, you, too, will sigh and weep for those who reject Me.

seem. In effect, to make the offering acceptable, purity of conscience and the right intention are essential conditions. 2) If you wish, you can offer Me for yourself and for others; try to be clean of all blemish. How much I am honored by the soul that, recognizing that it is deprived of all good, offers Me to the Father to lessen his sins and that of others. This is an act of faith, hope, and charity at the same time, an act in which I am truly glorified by the creature and by My Father. By the creature, because he recognizes Me as his Redeemer; by the Father, because appreciating infinitely the offering, He gives Me the fruit in proportion to the hope that He puts in My work as Mediator between man and God. 3) Soul of Mine, you have sinned much, it is true, but now all has been forgiven. And do you know why? Because of the offerings you have made of Me when you attend Mass and participate with love for it. I have given you the full fruit of My suffering because you have come to understand, with My Light, that it is better to think in My honor, in My Glory, before your justification. You have forgotten in a certain sense, your doubts in order to concentrate on My crown of glory. That is why you think of Me, and I have thought of you…

THE GREAT TRIBULATION IS PREPARED CL-32
9-Jan-96 Jesus

1) My daughter, a great campaign should be drawn up, a Crusade of atonement and penance. This Crusade will be intense and constant, strong and real, and truthful and convincing. The world must prepare itself to resist the attacks of the Beast. The great tribulation is prepared and the world will cry tears of blood. 2) If the world prays, My reign will be closer and My Sacred Heart will pour over the hearts of men the Light and the Life of the true Love that, being infinite, springs from Me. It will show you the true way to follow with regard to your duty towards your neighbor. 3) All of humanity offends Me; they do not want to listen to My voice, nor do they want to understand it. But My sadness is greater because even those that call themselves Mine do not want to hear it. I have asked that reparation be made, no one pays attention, they fear the “what will others say”. While they vacillate, men continue accumulating iniquities and, as a result, greater chastisement for all humanity. 4) These people to whom I have given evident signs of My sorrow… so great is their pride that they fear to teach a campaign of prayer and reparation. They 16 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

are content and believe themselves free of all responsibility by praying on the first Friday of each month… I am tired; their complacency hurts Me! 5) I want to free man of countless corruption. But between the noise of his eagerness for material things, his worldly preoccupations, his ephemeral joys, his wickedness, hatreds, and grudges… he does not hear the voice that designates the way to avoid the evil which will inevitably fall – if he continues in his deafness – over him and over all the world. 6) I speak to many souls; I show them the signs; I send them to speak and, like you, they speak repeatedly… on deaf ears. 7) Speak with the authorities of the Church and tell them that it is My desire: a national preparation of the souls for a National Crusade of prayer and penance based on voluntary sacrifice so that My Heart in its Love will show its Mercy towards the people. 8) I want preparation for the Crusade, that should take place during Lent, to be preferably for the youth, showing them the way by which they are called by the Divine Will, in order to form the new society of the Kingdom that must come and in which they will be unmovable columns. 9) This country has a place in these designs and must show itself worthy of My Love. Be it, then, that this country and its children, who setting their sight on My Heart, know how to offer themselves for the atonement that I request. 10) Organize everything. The Crusade must start without delay, for humanity needs it. One must pray and atone for all the people who, forgetting Me, have sown hatred and violence. 11) Only in making man understand where salvation and peace are, will he be able to live in a righteous brotherhood and in the light that gives truth, truth that he will find only in My Divine Heart. From My Heart he must seek Mercy; copy its gentleness; in it and with it he must suffer and accept whatever is necessary for the required redemption. 12) He must give that verbal expression which I request. He must call himself to atonement and penance if he wants My Peace that is the union of all hearts with My Heart, that Peace which is the illumination of the uncreated Love. 13) The path that humanity follows goes directly to its extermination… If you were to contemplate for one instant, you would be surprised at the foul smell of certain sins that are committed with the deliberate purpose of offending Me. 14) The horror of the crimes committed by men, creating children in order to kill them, utilizing their lives as one would utilize a piece of leather to fix another piece… the magnitude of the offenses that are committed against the Divinity, the blasphemies

and sacrileges that are said and done against Him… 15) Even among My people there exists this horrible confusion. They arose in their pride against Me and would not listen to My voice; they follow only the voice of their appetites, accommodating their lives and consciences to their passions. How can I be among those who, putting aside My word because it is hard to follow, follow only their pride? 16) The Crusade is necessary in the entire world. Start it in this town, radiate towards other points, so that it will expand, as I wish to expand My Mercy. The word must go forth so that it moves hearts and makes a great part of humanity understand the whirlwind that has enveloped man. The road embarked upon can only take man to total destruction if he does not do penance. 17) The constant decide (the spiritual murder of souls that God redeems - see CL-34) that man commits in his pride and cruelty prepares his eternal damnation. Humanity is passing through the decisive crisis of its history. 18) Far from Me, the majority of the nations, will give themselves to the Beast because this monster of Satan flatters men, propositioning them since the beginning; making them believe that, free from the ties of the commandments, they can work very freely with the view that they are gods of themselves. 19) Blinded by the glare of that unlimited power that they bring about themselves, they act tyrannically, subduing the defenseless and the innocent, committing all kinds of cruelties and injustices; without thinking that God would have not to exist and that they would have to be all-powerful and immortal to accomplish all this without punishment. 20) But the Divinity does exist and, they being mortals, God in His justice has to punish this horrendous sin that resembles in its pride the one committed by the rebel angels who were all light and are now darkness. 21) But not all people will suffer this condemnation. They will suffer according to their sins and, because of that punishment, they will come to understand whereabouts of the path to pursue. 22) Why have you also ignored My orders? I have spoken to you about a Society of the New Alliance. I have been instructing you on a series of important steps for this great work that I want to do. What am I to expect of others, if you, to whom I have given so much, do not fight for Me? 23) Why have you all not continued distributing the books in the Convents as I asked? You may not touch one cent for the books because it has been given to you freely in order to diffuse My Word. You also are falling into very great mistakes by not listening carefully to My Words.

I am Love, I am infinite Charity and the infinite Mercy but, I am also absolute Justice… 25) Thank you, little one, for putting up with your pains for Me. Offer them to My Sacred Heart to console its pains.

Unfortunately, a great majority of them have grown up fed by hatred and educated in the pleasure of crushing and subduing the rest of humanity. 3) The triumph of good over evil is in them and, since they are to be the ones who fight against it, they have to feel sure, feel strong against all that will come from the infernal power. They must keep in mind the conviction and confidence in the ideas of true peace and justice, founded in the Love of My Heart that knows how to understand and feel the anxieties of all humanity. 4) That must be the work of the Crusade, to plant very deeply, so that when the plant grows, the roots will be firm and solid in the ground of truth, faith, and charity. Those apostle soldiers will be the grandeur of the nation to which they belong because they will defend the truth. 5) There is almost no time left, one must make souls, individually and collectively, comprehend the necessity to make penance for their own sins and those of others, placating in this way God’s just anger. 6) The atonement by sacrifice, by pain, and by suffering should be the norm in your convents and parishes, as it is a way for the Divinity to feel pity for those rebellious, conceited, and proud creatures. 7) There are many souls that suffer, suffer deeply, and sacrifice themselves passively and needlessly because those sufferings are unfortunately accepted without a purpose, without a single gesture of love for God or neighbor. It is important to show these souls that those trials, to which the Divine Wisdom submits them, have an incalculable merit if they are directed to the utmost Good and are united to the suffering of My Divine Heart. 8) Help the poor souls that, oppressed by sin, groan and do not have enough fortitude to liberate themselves from it, sometimes because of ignorance, and other times because they have become spiritually lukewarm. 9) I want all sufferings to be voluntarily united to MESSAGES 17

those that My Heart endured, so that this immolation will be the best sacrifice through which man will find pardon for his sins and crimes before God. 10) Be aware that by acting this way, having as a purpose to liberate the world of imminent destruction, all human acts are going to be directed rationally and spiritually to the One and Supreme Good.

THE SALVATION OF THE WORLD RESTS WITH MY IMMACULATE MOTHER CL-34

Jesus

I want you all to work on this medal (*) that has come to your hands through an angel and not as a heirloom, and that Monsignor (**) has so kindly proposed that it be the Medal of the Congress… I will provide the funds; one by one many will be made. Now you will understand. I did everything. 2) I want you to wear that medal and become worthy of all the graces that will be granted through it. 3) The heart of My Mother must be honored with Mine, since She is always interceding for all humanity. As long as love will not nourish men’s actions with its strength, his path will continue to hurl downward into ruin and extermination. The crown of thorns that surrounds the two hearts is to teach you to value the terrible suffering of My Passion, of that crown that I carried with love on My head full of blows and cuts, so that you will know at what price your souls were bought. 4) On the other side (with the monstrance with the Eucharist), the only thing that will save humanity and, towards that end, the Crusade of Atonement must be directed toward: The Marian Eucharistic Congress. 5) You see, My daughter, nothing is a coincidence in the things of Heaven, all has a glorious end that was divinely planned. 6) If there might be many souls that may atone, it would be possible to avoid another deicide that is being prepared. Deicide is to spiritually murder the souls that I redeemed, throwing them into the blackness of blasphemy and heresy, drowning them in the iniquity of the apostasy… They want to dispense with God; pride is blind and makes them deaf; they search in material things what they can find only in Me. 7) Which one of the men who pretends to improve the world would allow himself to be where I am, on the Cross? Who would suffer and die as I, even knowing that with that all would be saved? No one, My daughter! 8) Evil can only be extinguished in the fire of My Love and My Truth; in My ever Merciful Heart, which overflowing with generosity, wants to help 18 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

humanity avoid its total ruin because, to save it, sacrificed Itself on the Tree of the Cross. 9) If this immolation is to be partly ineffective for the world, may it not be for those whom I call Mine, the ones who place obstacles to My commands or do not silence the sound of man so that he may know of My coming and with it salvation. For this reason, little daughter, write and obey, because this Word of Mine will be for the good of many. Drink at the wound of My side and satisfy the thirst of love that has always filled your heart. You will satisfy those insatiable anxieties upon drinking the living water that will make you find the pain, the suffering, as the greater joy that anyone could imagine. Love of pain is the only sure road to becoming the chosen cup and to find in My Heart a place of infinite happiness. 10) The salvation of the world rests with My Immaculate Mother because Her heart is always offering itself before the Divinity. (*) It is a medal that represents a monstrance with the Eucharist, and on the reverse side are the hearts of Jesus and Mary surrounded by a crown of thorns. Accompanying them, the following inscription: “Let us eternally adore the Holy Sacrament… to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary honor and glory”. (**) It is referring to the Archbishop of Cochabamba, Monsgr. René Fernández Apaza.

SURRENDER YOUR WILL BECAUSE OF THE LOVE YOU HAVE FOR ME CL-35

Jesus

My daughter, you ask Me to invalidate your will. No, My little one, not that, you are to keep your will because I want you to be the one who voluntarily chooses to live at My side or depart from Me, the one who accepts to suffer for My Love or renounce the immolation. 2) If I were to invalidate your will, subordinating it to Mine, you would be the same instrument that you are now, but it would be lacking of all sentiment and you would not receive the fruit of your work because it would lack all merit. I summoned you: follow Me. if your desire and will impel you to this, but do it spontaneously, valiantly and certain of what you desire and certain that your love for Me dictates your heart. 3) In uniting yourself to the small and the large, to joy and sadness, to work and suffering, even though your courage may fluctuate and you may feel tired and fear getting weak, be assured that you are closer to My Heart. You are closer than if I were to invalidate your will completely and utilize you without you being an obstacle to My purposes.

want you submitted to My wishes and My Love, not by My power but by the love that you have for Me and brings you to submerge yourself in My Heart, submitting yourself voluntarily to all that I desire and wish of you. Only in this way do I invalidate the wills because the souls that I choose know how to invalidate themselves by humility and sacrifice in order to have Me closer…

The road of the Cross is the surest way to obtain the divine gifts on earth. But one must go through it voluntarily, certain, valiant and without weaknesses. 2) My calls are constant and to many, but few know My voice. The interior solitude from where I am pleased to call souls is destroyed many times by the world’s deafening noises. My voice remains mute because of others that shout and confuse with tangible and temporal promises. 3) My calls are diverse. There is no heart that has not heard My voice, but what little attention they give it. If the creature knew how to love, she would know My voice when I speak because I am Love. For love I forget all, forgive all, and give all. When one truly surrenders to My Love, without expecting any reward, neither human nor divine, I lavish on her the crumbs of the celestial festivities with such abundance that she has no recourse but to recognize that she does not deserve so many gifts.

suffer united always to My sufferings in order to save many souls that would be lost if there were not generous souls willing to expiate for them. Later they themselves will expiate for others, uniting themselves to the Communion of Saints. This is the true divine charity: to redeem, to expiate in silence, to ignore the why and for whom you suffer, to move solely in the circle of Divine Love without hesitation, and to trust in the Divine Justice and in My Heart, the fountain of strength. 5) (I lay down to rest for a few minutes and in my mind I saw the image of the Lord of the Divine Mercy among green and purple lights. His face was transparent. I sat up suddenly frightened). 6) Do not fear, beloved daughter, I want you to see Me this way because these are the colors of hope and suffering. That double light guided My footsteps on earth. 7) I suffered without interruption for the salvation of the human race, but that suffering was illuminated and tied to that other light of hope in My Father, and the confidence that My sufferings would bear an infinite fruit.

Little daughter, no suffering is lost in the divine goodness. Besides, this way you are closer to Me, who also suffered those same pains. It is as if by taking your soul I would bring it closer to My Heart, melt it into Mine. This way in Me, forming a whole with Me, you are part of the redemption of many souls. 2) You ask about yours? Yours is in My hand as long as your will wants Mine to be in you. Let Me mold you like soft wax until it gets to be a true image of the seal of My Heart. For this you must love and suffer without fainting, surrendering yourself voluntarily and with absolute confidence. 3) Suffer for a soul that has lost the faith. Pray a lot for that soul so that at the end it will be saved. Afterwards offer those sufferings for another, and another, and yet another… 4) Remember that in one-way or another, you must

1) (Praying I ask God to help me have the qualities needed to evangelize and to be able to help save souls). 2) Do not believe that you would serve Me better. Do not think that the great works accompanied by noise and extraordinary mortification would have greater merit in My eyes if you neglected the small things that I ask of you. I am more pleased with that discipline of the will through which you have come to Me. 3) Sanctity can be reached in all states. Of some I ask great things, of others, small ones. All of them exercising their will to please Me have the same merit before My eyes because the true value is not in what they do, but rather, in the intention with which they do it, uniting their will and identifying it with Mine. 4) The world must confide in the heart of My Mother, for only that Immaculate Heart and Mine will be the refuge in the hours of pain and trial that are drawing near. She must be invoked this way: “Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, be our salvation,” or “Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, save us as we turn to thee.” Because from the very beginning she offered her heart to pain and it very sadly contemplates the limitless evil that her children seek. In that heart all human pain has its echo and its balsam.

That heart that offered itself for the salvation of humanity is also present now to rescue it from ruin. They, who calling upon her in their distress, come closer to Him and will not perish eternally. 6) Just like the angels cast the Name of God in His Unity, Trinity and Sanctity to the four winds on earth and sea to prepare the way for the great trial, thus men, all souls, must praise Him incessantly and recognize His might saying: “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord of all armies, full of Your Glory are the heavens and the earth.” I want this to be said frequently, followed by a Glory be… 7) The recognition of God, one, triune, and omnipotent, the compliance to His Supreme Power, can mitigate the rigor of His justice. Say it like this so that in all the religious houses He will be recognized as Lord of Armies. All those souls consecrated to My service form part of My army, and their prayers are part of the weapons with which the enemy will be defeated and crushed. 8) The prayers, voluntary sacrifices, atonement and penance are so acceptable to the Divinity to placate His just anger. Why not call humanity to this Crusade that I ask for? Are their eyes so full of dust and mud that it impedes them to see how men hate each other to death? Do they not hear the noise of the storm that is drawing closer?

daughter, write all that I am going to reveal to you because it is very necessary for certain things to serve for your instruction because of the times that have already arrived. Without this help it would be very hard for you all to survive. (Given the nature of this message, it shall be distributed only among the more defined groups). 2) The mission of the angels consists in guiding mankind through the ages. For this, these invisible beings generally have a positive influence on the human intelligence. 3) When it has been necessary, these angels have lived together with men, taking on human appearance and at times that of any animal, depending on what is necessary, because they are to serve and lead men towards their destiny without ever leading them to evil. 4) Today these spirits live among men, travel through space, and give signals of their presence because the world is in crisis and needs much help. 5) There are angels that in a moment of crisis have helped peoples and nations get out of a primitive state. Races confined in different places on earth 20 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

have known the methods of agriculture, mining, literature, science and the arts at the same time under the same norm and education. 6) The mission of certain angelic spirits is to plant the seed of wisdom in the new nations, according to the divine plans. And once men assimilate them and their intelligence is opened to all teaching and research, they are left at the mercy of their own strength without them noticing the absence of such spirits. 7) The phenomena of bilocation is produced when the person is taken in soul and body to another place of his usual residence until his mission is fulfilled and returns instantly to where he lives without anyone who lives with him noticing anything. But the person who has made that trip does remember where he has been, as well as all of those who, living in the place where he went, saw him and lived with him. 8) I shall tell you where these angels come from. When the battle in Heaven broke out, there was a certain number of undecided angels who at the last moment united and fought against Lucifer. Those separated angels were judged by God and are in a special place so that, in carrying out the mission for which they were created, may again possess Heaven at the end of time. However, when their help is needed, they hear the divine mandate and go forth to the place to which they are sent and they fulfill their mission. They do not lead to evil. They have been judged and their state is similar to those souls that are purifying themselves in Purgatory, in order to be able to go to God and enjoy Him.

Always give thanks when you find yourself amidst the anguish of the human path. Be thankful for My charitable Love because I send you exactly the things you need to make you into My image. 2) Do not harden your heart if you experience hardships because no lover of Mine can be without these exercises from which afterwards will always come out more beautiful and radiant of love. Do not be perturbed, oh My beloved, if I have given the evil one permission to wage war with you. It is the war of his hatred and it is enough for you to know this to lighten the sadness that you now feel. 3) Do not be uncertain because after studying the enemy's movements, all good soldiers must predispose themselves to counterattack him, and the weapons that you need to win are here in My Heart that

you adore. 4) I want to give you a sign that will help you and tell you that you are not alone to resist the pressure of hell. Oh, no, you are not alone because you are surrounded by Seraphims that I have given you for your support and company. If you accept the fight in this way, as I wish, you will see that on earth even the most inexperienced creature as you, can defeat the astute one of darkness, and that even before someone as small as you, the sower of discord must stop his fight. 5) For this I have prepared you, and do not put into your little head things that are only human. I guarantee you that I Myself have predisposed them for your greater good.

They are things that proceed from Me and must not stop in you because they must return to Me… Man must be ready for anything if he wants to be Mine, and must not attach any conditions to the fulfillment of My plans. 3) Everything must be left so that My Will can be accomplished on earth and, by giving up everything, you find everything truthful, as in Heaven. 4) Oh, child, you are sad because you do not find stability. Have you thought carefully about why I am opposed to things being done the way you wish? 5) You must think that, My being a very tenderhearted Father, there should exist some reason of Mine that prevents Me from consoling you in your sorrows. Men are instruments that cannot stop Me from doing My Will and no one ever altered the course of My Providence in aiding all of you. Be reasonable; do not be stubborn and degrade yourself for lack of faith… for I am firm in My Will.

sleep. I know well how you are. I see it. You are in My crucible and must allow Me to have free rein in you; otherwise, everything will fall apart for you. 3) Therefore, I am here to assure all of you that you are Mine, and I always consider you as such. If something unpleasant happens to you, do not act as children who do not know and cry. I know and this is enough for you. Otherwise, think about yourselves, because you must get use to reflecting on what concerns you, not on what concerns Me. 4) Do you understand, My beloved? Have a lot of confidence. Try hard to enter through the narrow doorway, by which you would not want to enter. And if you think that I augment your sorrows more each time, I say to you that it is true because I want greater affection from you. Right now you do not understand what I am telling you, but you will later. 5) You are placed between hell and your nothingness. It will please Me if you confess to Me your helplessness and you truly continue doing that. There will be no deception because I will always guard you against it. 6) I cannot hide from you, oh daughter of that Mother who knows how to protect secretly and powerfully, that the game is not simple, but here you must be and unite your efforts, miserable in themselves but necessary, to make you worthy of her and of Me. How many times have I made you pray so that you may understand these hours! 7) Do not continue fearing them because the grace that I will give you through our incomparable Mother is great… It is to the children’s benefit to be united to the Mother, and he who is united to Mary, sees on earth that her maternal power has no limits. 8) Go rest for a few minutes, but before you do, know that My comfort has been requested by the souls for whom you pray.

They are stated in a very explicit way so that there will be no doubt in your minds and also so that it may assist in the sanctification of other souls. 2) I shall speak to you about the favorite topic in which you find abundant nourishment. 3) What feelings did I have when asking the apostles to keep Me company praying in the night of Gethsemane? It was sadness and a premonition of agony that moved Me to ask for that help and I asked openly, overtaken by the great knowledge of the complete sacrifice that was awaiting Me. MESSAGES 21

But they did not have the necessary comprehension as My witnesses since they could not understand, not even vaguely, what I wanted when asking for their help. I was well acquainted with them, but for their future education, I did not speak because I was hoping to see them included in My suffering, since contemplating they would have been united to Me in their future sorrows of apostles. So that each one of you knows that to fulfill My desires, it is always necessary to pray and to be vigilant. 5) But this is not all, it is only the part that corresponds to you. And My part? My humanity greatly resisted taking the first step into that Garden that was to be the place of My capture and the beginning of My sufferings, always anticipated and now present. How many times had I prayed in that Garden without experiencing even an instant of indecision! But to give you all hope, My beloved ones that are put on earth to continue My Passion, I wanted to manifest My weakness and in this way, reinforce yours. 6) If I proceeded in this manner, you also should ask for real help with prayer and to watch over the suffering of your brothers, mankind. 7) But this is the exterior side of the events. I was like an overloaded boat about to cross an ocean full of squalls. I was relying only on My gift and in the illuminated power of My Father through which I asked Him to save Me from that hour… Sadness, grief, solitude, faintness: that was My state… 8) And you, how are you now? Do you understand, then, that I make you in My image? You, too, put your knees on the ground of your sacrifice and say with Me: “Father, if it is possible, take this cup away from Me, but Your will be done, not Mine.” And when you have said with intimate conviction: FIAT, then everything will stop and you will be renewed in My Love.

MARY IS THE SUBLIME CREATURE CL-44

11-Jan-96

Jesus

Joyous movement and the splendor of Celestial Spirits that, united in charity, sang praises. Such was Mary’s entry into Heaven when She was taken to eternal happiness. But the greatest happiness was Mine because I was placing My Mother, for whom I had reserved so much splendor, in Glory. Of course now is not the time for you to be able to understand what happened that day, so much more is the love that reigns in Heaven than what the majority of you can understand in a limited way. For that reason, I do not speak to you about this to describe that festival. More useful it is for Me to refer to some of the benefits that one has been able to obtain from that day in 22 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

which My Mother was taken away from mankind. 2) Above everything else, the glory and the grandeur of a mother is decency and protection for Her children. Therefore, it was possible for Her help to end up being a powerful living reality for all of you, and believe Me, this is no small thing. Then the fact that She took Her place in Heaven was cause for pleasure for Her children who had already found glory in Paradise. 3) What most interested the Trinity was to receive the most faithful copy of Me, which was My Mother, and with this there was major resonance in Heaven. Indeed, the satisfaction of the Father is infinite because of the likeness between Her and Me; the satisfaction of the Word is likewise infinite because of Her maternity. And the satisfaction of Love is also infinite because in love, Mary is the sublime creature you will know. For that reason the omnipotence of the Father, the maternal right of the Word made Flesh, and the Grace of the Holy Spirit for Mary were the prerogatives that I acquired from the moment in which I took Her into Heaven with Me. So, the accumulation of these prerogatives came to be an enormous quantity of benefits for Mary’s children, good and bad. 4) Before Her entry into Heaven, your mediator, the most valid intercessor after Me, was missing but, since then, you have to your advantage, the most powerful and most affectionate Mother. Whoever avails himself of Her will have what My kindness has prepared for the future glory of each one. Whoever does not, shall remain miserable because I have put everything in Her hands and I do not want to do anything without Her. 5) I tell you that you do not love this Mother very much and for this reason you do not consider that She would be useful and even necessary for you. The glories of Mary are these: to do good and to love. How many times must She resort to simple means to make you all accept Her love! And, are not the small graces that you ask of Her simple appeals? Wake up, My brothers, and run to our Mother; this is what I want.

THE SUMMIT OF LOVE: HUMILITY CL-45
1)

11-Jan-96

Jesus

To humble yourself before others is an effective way to advance that produces vigorous effects on the Divine Love. But to humble yourself means to know your own nothingness, not with empty words, but truly how it is. 2) He who attempts to humble himself will feel a great resistance in doing it and will find a thousand reasons not to do it. Resistance is good because the

value of humiliation consists precisely in defeating it (the resistance); on the other hand, thinking about humiliation is bad. One can say that the less you think about this topic, the more you gather fruits derived from humiliation. 3) I am directing you towards the summit of love and I always prepare for you new humiliations, precisely to make you suffer. Through experience I demonstrate to you the sport of highs and lows, and you truly run next to Me like a deer over the steep slopes of your mountain. By reaching the top, you will master the distance covered and new horizons will be opened to you. If you are tired of following Me, it is not enough motive to abandon Me. 4) I know, many miseries are merging to suddenly drown you, and I warn you so that you will be firmly united to Me, your infinite richness. The end of everything will come the moment you receive My proof. In this there is no doubt because My Word is given. 5) Confine your sufferings in Me, I ask you to do this constantly. Subsequently, I shall open your mind and your heart so that you can see and love your Creator in the state of wisdom.

on you! If you want My happiness, take great pains to understand Me. I will not ask you for great sacrifices; I am happy with little. You can give Me joy because I help you with this. 5) Whoever does not want to come near out of fear, call out to My Mother with all your soul and tell her about your anguish. See, how easy it is to give Me pleasure? 6) Look at Me kindly. I am He whom love has turned into a madman before your eyes. I am the one who before anyone else, has known how to give you the joys that you hope for. I am He who burns with love and who makes you burn with love. I and only I… am Love.

Many times you get confused, My daughter; you hear My voice and follow it a little in darkness and, urged by My strength, you decide to accept My voice. Since you do not see Me, you become vexed and it seems to you that it is not My voice. You pause, and once again you accept. 2) You are a child… Listen to Me. I shall be gentle with you who sometimes distrusts and then accepts, but will be firm with those who boast. What is more, the water that takes the thirst away and which I repeatedly promise you through My Gospel, is so sweet in you, that you can very well say that you have proof. But I am inexhaustible in sweetness, and what today seems immense to you, tomorrow will seem small, is the fairground attraction of the infinite. 3) These wounds that you see so lucid are yours. This Heart that you admire in delirium is yours. Lean again on Me; listen to My heartbeats, they are the echo of My Mercy that is holding back weakly and that mankind abuses. What must I do to attract them without the danger of them abandoning Me out of meanness? I am all Love and I take great pains to make them understand. 4) If they do not believe, what will they do afterwards without Me? Is it not enough that I put at their disposal everything created in order to make them believe? Oh, My beloved ones, it all depends

I shall give food sparingly to the greedy person and shall put abundance on the table of the humble one. He who hides behind selfishness will not find Me satisfied, and I shall be generous with whoever extends his arms. It is My eternal Justice that regulates the world and, although mitigated by mercy, it is always known and valued. 2) If I were dealing with loving creatures, love and mercy would suffice, but I have before Me many who understand one act of Justice more than the other [love and mercy]. 3) Furthermore, they fear Me for this without understanding that in Me, there is unlimited power, be it Mercy or be it Justice, and that it is immaterial for Me to use one or the other. My wish concerning the actions of men is not relative but absolute in relation to Me because I am unalterable and I do not change My Will for any of man’s contrary or delaying actions. 4) But I speak to you with a preference for Mercy because what I want is for your good and for the child it is much easier to receive it through Mercy. But one of My attributes is also Justice, which is infinite as is My kindness. So, in order to favor My inclination to be kind, I have arranged that My same infinite Justice might be satisfied through the humanity taken on by Me. 5) Therefore, on the one hand, Justice leans on My humanity; on the other, Mercy comes from My very own humanity, perfectly in accordance with Justice. He who loves finds everything necessary to manifest his love because love teaches everything. 6) You, the miserable ones, through My Justice have become rich in My Mercy and you can truly please Me if you allow yourselves to be covered with My humanity that embraces all your deficiencies and miseries.

To his follower Babel, jewel of the nations, to the proud ornament of the powerful, I will raze with the breadth of My ire… and never will it be inhabited nor populated through generations to come. Its hours are numbered and its days will not be prolonged. I will eradicate its name and roots, converting it into an immense marsh. 2) My new Zion will rejoice. My new city constitutes the salvation of its people. It will be the refuge of the chosen ones and the repentant that will trust in Me. 3) Among the people of the earth, the new Zion will rejoice. Every single inhabitant will been forgiven his iniquity. Those whom I help, the liberated ones, will reach this new Zion through a roadway and a road attained by Atonement and Penance, and their hearts will exalt with joy upon passing its doors, for all suffering will have passed.

My daughter, the face that you see in your soul is My image. When you see all these things, it is because you see with My eyes. When you write what you never studied or could ever know, it is because My Spirit tells you what to say; and you go on listening to My voice because I live in you. Compare yourself to a light bulb: I am the electric current and you light up only because I give you the energy. 2) Your soul, upon contact with that divine life that is in you, is the one that moves and yields; it adheres to the hand that moves it and takes divine forms. That grace does marvelous things in souls, when these have no other will but God’s. 3) When souls, surrendered completely to Me, live to do My Will and living in grace, live in Me and I in them. My image remains engraved in the soul, with indelible characters, and will never erase. My Kingdom on earth will make that possible because with everyone taking My mark in their souls, they will conform their actions and love to My Will. Man will want and desire My reign to come to him with all the force of My Will. And he will pray that it shall be so. 4) My beloved, you are going to continue suffering; you are going to help Me save many souls. In due course everything will come.

His insolence, his astuteness, and his strength full with vigor, put into action, will destroy and annihilate the powerful by the evil power that has been given to him, and with them the faithful that believe in Me and in Me await. 3) With deceit, his ingenuity will make lies seem like truth, getting whatever he intends. This son of wickedness, engendered by Satan, has all his diabolic intelligence in action. His words resonate in the world, especially his doctrine on earth. It is the subtle sound that fills all spaces, forming in the hearts the advent of that era of terror and evil. 4) That being is, like a hidden instrument of shrewdness and deceit, a powerful machine that moves men, driving them mad, and leading them to error and confusion. He lives hidden; it is as if everything were only eyes that look at the world; mouth that speaks words that confuse and seduce the minds of man, causing them to rush to their perdition. 5) He will be worse than anyone else. He will gather the most cruel and barbaric army on earth. He will tread on nations. He will annihilate the same nations that listened to his voice and followed his words. 6) His power will grow till midday; it will even get to the country where My flock grazes. My army of

peace will be partly destroyed and thrown out of the Sanctuary. He will get to Rome. He and his army will profane the sacred place and the sacrifice will be abolished. In his pride, his heart full of hatred, he will carry through the most monstrous action, throwing himself towards where the Pope is, trying to raise himself. 7) Then, without man’s intervention, he will be destroyed because all his power will be taken away forever. This will happen and then, the advent of My Kingdom that will be an eternal empire… All the peoples of the earth will be ruled by My law… 8) That atonement and penance which I ask for is necessary to slow done the course that threatens humanity, this humanity that does not want to put away its pride and obey the divine laws. 9) (In my mind I see a white round clock with roman numerals in black. The hands of the clock show 11:50-51). 10) These messages must be taught with the greatest discretion because of their apocalyptic character, for not everyone has the sufficient preparation, the one that you all have been acquiring in these past years…

MY HOUR WILL SOON STRIKE…OFFER CONTINUOUS PRAYER CL-52
11-Jan-96 Jesus

1) My hour will soon strike for the joy of many souls and the sorrow of others… My messages of love, preparing humanity to face with atonement and penitence the evil that is approaching, are neither heard nor put into practice. 2) The Divine Mercy, ready to mitigate that evil, is not implored. If there were more souls that atone, suffering for those that neither know nor want to do it, many things would change. 3) The forces of hell, accumulating all their power, are swiftly deceiving the world in order to unleash the most terrible war that centuries have known. 4) Since time has passed in vain confirmations and the punishment is imminent, I want, I desire all the formation houses that are dedicated to My service in all the religious orders, to be preparing to be the army that will give the triumph in the decisive battle, in that hour in which I will remove the bad from the earth and institute My reign. 5) I want My peaceful army to decide with its spiritual force, the destiny of humanity for its own good and grandeur… 6) With its help, I will settle everything in an instant, everything that man would not be able to achieve but by force of years. I will show Myself to everyone, and even those who deny Me will believe. Because of this, salvation without penance is not possible.

Many and great evils will continue to come if penance is not made. Many are the sins, much the pride against God, whose Justice is held back by My Mother’s pleadings and supplications. 7) My daughter, the evil, the ambition, the pride, and the sensuality of life have created a monstrous present-day sin: the willful negation of the wrong that is done to God through all kinds of sins. 8) Working in this way, humanity atrophies the collective conscience and imbues in it the erroneous notion of what is natural in life, in order to make believe that everything is lawful if everyone does it…, taking away from it malice and introducing it in the mentality of all people. 9) Therefore, God is excluded and one must not think that He is offended and rejected when one works unjustly with shamelessness and malice. Pride is reigning in the world, and from that pride sprout all the vices preventing it from acquiring humility, the virtue that would allow it to reach the divine benevolence and the fruits of charity. 10) I need souls that by sacrificing themselves voluntarily and lovingly will offer Me continuous prayer and a burning desire for pain because of the offenses committed against My Divine Heart. 11) The love of the chosen ones of My Eucharistic Heart will have its reward in that same love, having Me always present in everything they contemplate and that surrounds them. The center of their material and spiritual life will be Me, as a foretaste of what will be eternally.

YOU ALL SHALL BE GLORIFIED BECAUSE YOU SUFFER FOR ME CL-53

11-Jan-96

Jesus

Let us continue, little flower of My Passion. Beyond all imagination and inasmuch as man can understand, I experienced in Myself abandonment, pain, and death. 2) From the first to the last hours of My mortal life, whether in secret or facing everyone, I wanted the sin of My brothers to always be present in Me, and so My soul was pierced by continuous arrows of death, leaving in it indescribable sadness. You cannot attribute to Me any larger grandeur than this: to have made Me the target of all your faults. 3) I knew extremely well the severity of the offenses that were and would be committed against My Father. My Divinity, having taken My Humanity as its instrument, informed Me of the ugliness that is hidden in rebellion and the resulting disobedience, transforming everything into cries of distress and martyrdom in the soul and body. Yet, only one inMESSAGES 25

stant would have sufficed, one single sigh from Me would have been enough to effect the redemption for which I had been sent. Nevertheless, I multiplied these sighs, I prolonged My life here below because Wisdom and Love wanted it so. 4) Having arrived at the end, I wished to intensify in Myself all kinds of sufferings; I saw everything I had to redeem and that everything was attributed to Me. The height of pain was there in the Garden and, as the Man that I wanted to be, I was terrified, overwhelmed, and physically destroyed. My Angel came and consoled Me, showing Me the sorrows that other faithful creatures of Mine would suffer for this suffering of Mine; glory was not shown to Me but rather love, compassion, and togetherness. That is how I received encouragement, some relief and strength. 5) Therefore, be faithful to Me because I have placed the fruit of My suffering in you and I have loved you, and I love you with unspeakable sweetness. 6) You all will complete My own Passion, you will be glorified because you suffer for Me who suffered for you. Moreover, I tell you that if you truly love Me, I shall continue suffering in you. I will transform you in such a way that each one of you will come to be a part of Myself, so that in Me you will live the pain as an active part of My Humanity.

is what I want, and this is what shall be. Thank you, little one, for carrying My Cross.

ARE YOU NOT GLAD ABOUT HAVING ACCEPTED MY INVITATION? CL-55
11-Jan-96 Jesus

VERY FEW ARE ABLE TO KNOW MY SUFFERINGS CL-54
11-Jan-96 Jesus

1) I know you want to have an understanding of how I suffered in soul and body for you, My beloved creature. Your wish pleases Me because from everywhere I receive petitions for graces, but very few ask to know about My sufferings. 2) Many graceless lips, indeed, beg to know things that concern their lives, but whoever asks Me for light in this manner fools himself. 3) Perfection lies in not desiring anything, in not asking for anything for oneself and on doing this, self-love weakens and, as a necessary result, the creature goes from the contemplation of self to the contemplation of Me. Hence, how sweet it is to hear you asking Me for the knowledge of My suffering! 4) I want to tell you that in lifting you up to Me, I have made sure to communicate to you an aspiration, each time greater, toward My suffering and, now that you have experienced the joy, I will see that you enter into My sufferings. Only in this way will I enlighten your soul so that it can satisfy your demand of knowing My sufferings. These exceed any word and they can be heard, but not explained. 5) Of what good would it be, indeed, to talk to you about them if I did not let you experience them? This 26 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

1) The day is announced with the first rays of sunshine at daybreak, and the whole of creation comes into light; an awakening in the luminosity of Heaven is produced in all creatures. 2) How I worry about you, and you do not know it! How much care I take so that you lack nothing! You are admitted to My banquet as the last beggar at the table of a great Lord. I have seen you and have had great compassion for you because you have presented yourself knowing your misery. You do not fake modesty; you do not hide your past misfortunes; you have no need to pretend, and that pleases Me very much! 3) “Come higher,” I have told you, “come sit next to Me because you are hungry and you are numb with cold. Drink, this wine is My Blood that I shed for your love; eat My Food, for you need to quench yourself.” 4) Are you not glad of having accepted My invitation? 5) Do you remember when you were far away and listening to the joyful goings on at My table, you were circling around My house and I, looking through the windows of your soul, called you with so much effusion of love? You were reduced to the most lamentable condition. “Come in,” I whispered, “come in here with us, try some of that food that one day you tasted.” But you were blind, almost deaf, and you did not know how to enter the house. 6) How many times, going outside and inviting you with small acts, medals, and fragrances, My Mother invited you in, echoing My invitation! 7) Finally you entered and everyone looked at you, but I was with you. And you took the last place, I allowed you to sit because you were very tired. When I called you near Me, everyone was astonished at My choice, but they were happy at My gesture. Then I ordered My angels to give you My own vestments and you received the ring from My forefinger. 8) This is the way I have treated you and you have understood well that My Love for you is great. Since then you have put yourself at the head of My repented, faithful ones and have made yourself champion of My Eucharistic Love. 9) The attitude with which you show your acknowledgment pleases Me so much! Who is to say if I prefer an innocent to a converted sinner? Can it be in-

ferred how much love I place on guarding innocence and how much in redeeming guilt? 10) Oh, look how great My affection is for all creatures, certainly, but especially for the most needy! Look at this bosom that burns, all of it burns in search of other beloved creatures to redeem. Present your soul to Me because My flames must graze you, must surround you. You must be precisely here, in My bosom because you must burn wholly. 11) I seek relief for My Love. In Me I am totally happy, but through you I want to empty Myself to many, many of My creatures. 12) I call you thus because I have wanted to confide in you the secrets of My soul and for you to give testimony of Me, to say how great My wish is to have them reciprocate My Love. 13) Tell everyone that I await them, that I search for them… Everyone, come to Me, come back to He who loves you with immense tenderness…

DO NOT THINK ABOUT YOUR SIN ANYMORE, I HAVE DONE AWAY WITH IT WITH THE SALUTARY BATH OF MY BLOOD CL-56
1)

11-Jan-96

Jesus

You must think relatively about past times. You need, on the other hand, to look at what I place before your eyes showing My Divine Wisdom. Direct constantly the gaze of the soul towards Me and do not let it be preoccupied about things that I have already cleared away with a salutary bath of My Blood. 2) The troublesome thoughts return because one does not believed in My Will, of which the very act of desiring - that is to say the act in which My Will is transformed into action - accomplishes the miracle of definitely erasing all your past sins which have pain and accomplishes the purpose of reforming. 3) Therefore, whoever looks back with thoughts of anxiety offends Me and will have no peace as long as they may not believe that what most interests Me in the creature is to destroy sin and its consequences. And, for that reason, no sooner does a soul accept the action of My grace and puts itself at My disposition, then I take the care of removing from it even the smallest stain. And not only this, but I also manage to dissipate your bad habits so that they never return… May everybody be dominated by new and holy habits!

The prudence you boast about is useless because as long as the truth, which is the same one for everybody, is not spoken, it will not be a certainty. One must know what is true and say it. What is true is an emanation from Me and the origin of what is truthful is vainly searched for outside of Me. 2) Children, what are you without Me? Do you not remember that you are nothing? Do you want to be certain? Fine, you must believe, not in what you have learned about human things at school; you must believe in the divine school that comes from the infallible laws dictated by Me. Do not doubt! I can and want to give more. I do not restrain the knowledge of the believer but rather, I must increase it and no one can thwart My action. 3) Teachers, theologians, and saints use with My sheep the understanding that I want. Do not entrench yourselves in disrespectful prudence because it is the one that seeks to restrict My Word within the bounds of customs and of times past. Go forth, the more I call you, the more I give you. 4) Be calm, I guarantee assistance to those who trust in Me. I mean assistance against the craftiness of My evil enemy that remains tied to the chains of his eternal defeat. He does not prevail if you walk the straight path. I assure you, I confirm it solemnly and, I tell you as a test these words that Satan, certainly, would never say: Blessed be always the Immaculate Conception of My Mother Mary…!

MY MOTHER: FEW TRULY APPRECIATE HER CL-58

11-Jan-96

Jesus

Beloved daughter, let us talk of My Mother the Immaculate Virgin. She takes care of Her children in such a way that each one of them can have the personal care that is necessary. She intervenes in their affairs, in those that seem difficult to them, and She handles them skillfully, interrupting, leading, and modifying with true maternal wisdom. Destined by Me to be your Mother, She assumes Her duty in a unique manner because She has at Her disposal all My means and an unlimited love. 2) Who takes note of Her work? A few, a few who truly value Her, for they are firmly convinced of Her greatness as My Mother. But, think; it is in fact because She is My Mother that She is their Mother and, it is precisely because She became My Mother that She continues doing Her vocation with them. They
MESSAGES 27

must not think that Her work was limited to the time of My mortal life, since She continues doing it and will continue till the completion of the centuries. 3) You will understand My Mother's sleepless nights as you understand My Love and, for this, you will feel closer to Her at the same time that you are with Me. In Me you will find the knowledge of everything and also the knowledge of Mary because She is the Creature that shares in My way of life like I shared in Her human nature… I was and am Her flesh. She is and will be My Spirit, My countenance, My charity, and My life. The other saints are also deified in Me, but She, My most chaste Mother, has reached the maximum deification, sharing in Me in a unique way as I have said and confirmed. 4) She can do everything; She does everything. That is why She is feared by Hell, that is why She is blasphemed by the damned who do not know how to make themselves capable of such grandeur. But I do what I want and I infinitely enjoy Myself in endowing that Virginity, which pleases Me so much, with all the attributes that are My own. 5) That is why Mary is grand, sublime, but knows how to make Herself small next to you who consider Her your Mother. She knows how to admirably provide for everything, as long as you place your trust in Her. You will be Her true children if you deal with Her in an informal way, simply as it suits those who live in My house and Hers. Give Her great joy by embracing Her because She is a Mother who suffered much when I revealed your difficulties to Her. 6) She is good, She is sweet, and is thrice Holy, our most beloved Mother!

SUFFERING IS A GIFT FROM GOD CL-59
1)

12-Jan-96

God the Father

Most beloved daughter, united with My Son in the desire and redemption of the Cross, your soul satisfies for the guilt in the uniting love, found in the tender knowledge of My Goodness which is united to the grief and suffering of the human heart; for by infinite love united to infinite suffering, My infinite Mercy works. 2) But man ignores this: he does not want to hear talk of pain accepted and desired for love of Me. It is redemption through My Son and of those who are united to Him in suffering, and who calling humbly to My Fatherly Heart, achieve perfect knowledge of themselves, of Me in them. 3) Do not be sad if finding yourself in this knowledge that you may have to suffer. Suffice to know that for that suffering, I will no longer remember
28 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

how you may have offended Me. And for those for whom your love has satisfied My Mercy, that suffering will prepare them so that they may receive My gifts. 4) The luminous souls of high stature that are at My left are the souls that unite themselves to My Son’s pains with their own. Sharing in My eternal Life, they will be and are very close to Me. 5) I will tell you what the suffering of My Son’s Heart is. You will understand that it is a reality. But I want you to write it for the knowledge of so many souls that do not understand how suffering could make them divine. 6) My Son’s suffering is latent in the universe ever since He redeemed the human race, and it will be so till the end of time if they do not come to understand that suffering is a gift from God and they reject it. Perhaps if they knew the value that this suffering has before My eyes, then not only would they not reject it, but they would insistently ask Me for it… 7) Upon giving His life for souls and becoming man in order to be able to suffer and redeem them, My Son elevated the nobility of suffering. He elevated it to such a degree that on being accepted voluntarily by a soul and becoming a scapegoat, the soul instantaneously takes upon itself not its own sufferings but rather part of My Son’s, which live forever for the redemption of man. 8) Suffering involves in itself: light, love, and knowledge of the truth. My Son’s Heart no longer suffers, but His pain will live in the universe as long as men insist on not seeing the light, in hating, and in not wanting to understand that I am the Truth. 9) My vision takes in what was, what is, and what will be, with such clarity that no one will be able to understand what is all before Me at the same time, without limitation nor space, and that can not only not make a mistake but not even get mixed up… This is why I tell you that, since the redemption of the human race by My Son, We have wanted for His pains, anguishes, sufferings, and martyrdom to remain in time, so that those elected souls, continue partaking of these tribulations and are able to be part of His redemption. 10) When not one soul is left to redeem and the end of time comes, then the suffering of the God-Man will disappear. 11) That is why, My daughter, I have wanted to make you see how Jesus’ suffering satisfies… The pain endured by My Son is an inexhaustible fountain of divine goods and gifts, source of sanctity, and eternal life for those who, identified with His Passion, unite themselves to Him, and with Him endure and suffer a martyrdom that is slow but intense in its

effectiveness. That is, to bear the physical and spiritual suffering without fainting, smiling at the pain, and wishing to share it with Jesus for the salvation of souls until the end of their days. 12) Unfortunately, humanity refuses pain more and more and anxiously seeks all the means that science discovers to suppress it. It does not want to accept pain in life and comes in its audacity to reject the merits of My Son’s Passion and Martyrdom in the redemption of man. 13) In his pride and rebelliousness he wants to come to Me without going through Christ… He does not want a wounded and crucified God to remind him of what He suffered for all men, forcing him to recognize that he is indebted to Him for his redemption. 14) They want a distant God and a God that will not bother them, without any painful reminders that could cause them remorse. They want God to admit that they, without Him, upon discovering all the mysteries of nature, are taking control of the great hidden force in the universe; to do so, they do not need Him, for they are intelligent and free beings. They ignore that I gave them that intelligence so that they could work for Me in the great work of the universe. 15) Also those I elevated to the highest dignity want to forge for themselves and others, a God that will submit to their ambitions and whims. They want to change the Church to the materialistic rhythm of the world, introducing in her, ways and customs that border on heresy and error. 16) Liberty should not mean independence and licentiousness… Evolution does not consist in changing the faith so that the Church will be better. Ever since the Church was founded by Christ and illuminated by the Holy Spirit, it carries in itself all the divine seeds for its gradual development in the ages and for its divine evolution in the souls that form her; and continuing in them everything that, being eternal, can take them to their God. 17) When they leave the trenches designed by the hand of Jesus, they deviate dangerously towards heresy, rebellion to the divine laws, the arrogance to not follow its laws when they elect themselves to renew their Church. 18) To come to Me, Light unreachable, it is necessary to go through Christ and Mary. One has to follow Their footsteps and humbly obey the divine designs. That is how the faithful man must accept it if he wants to find Me who, with My Divine Son and the Holy Spirit, We are one God. 19) For this, My Son’s Heart that gave the last drops of His Blood for men, wants to remain in the universe by means of His sufferings that live on and

remain as help and encouragement for the souls that hunger for the Divine and want to unite themselves to Him in the redemption. 20) In this way His merciful Love becomes present and His redemption everlasting to so many souls that were, are, and will be in the course of all ages. 21) Suffer silently, humbly, feeling the hunger for the salvation of souls, and going through all the tribulations to the extent that I want to send them. In this way you will unite with the suffering of My Son and I will know that you seek the Kingdom of God in souls.

I EXPECT GREAT THINGS FROM THIS COUNTRY CL-60
1)

12-Jan-96

Jesus

The Church is already going through the great trial of fire where she shall be purified, sifted, until the separation of the dregs of humanity comes about. Many will be separated and thrown out because they cannot live together, nor can the good prosper mixed with the bad. 2) Arrogance is sowing treason among My consecrated ones and, like Judas, they sell themselves for ideas they consider superior to My Gospel message. Their vanity and pride does not want to admit that the divine simplicity of My message is adequate for these times and they try to change My Gospel, making it like the present day world, thus changing the authentic values. 3) My Gospel is a Divine Message. There is no set time but rather, it was ordained for all times; in its simplicity and purity it is suitable for all souls, for all minds, and for all ages… The creature is not superior to the Creator, or the man wiser than He who gave him life and wisdom and it is the same Wisdom. 4) The enemies of the soul reign today in the world like a necessity that is admitted and accepted as natural. As this, the world is before God; the devil makes himself god and the flesh shows itself in all its nudity, unleashing confused appetites. 5) The notion of sin is taken away from the soul and it is made to see God as a far off and old-fashioned being whom one must not fear nor obey. 6) Nevertheless, as evil spreads with ease, there are also good souls that suffer, pray, and love. They will be the ones that will save the world and the Church. Those faithful souls, hidden, ignored, and valuable, will be the ones that make the Church resurrect as new and beautiful. 7) From this Country I expect great things, for that I placed it under the protection of My Archangels. They will protect it. MESSAGES 29

Understand, My children, your prayers and fasting have great value. By the prayers of this daughter of Mine and the intercession of My Mother, I have accepted to instruct you a bit more… You must start to live off faith, off each word that, in an incomprehensible manner for man, was directed at you. A bit more… there is little left to tell you… Do not undertake great deeds, live what you possess because, remember that, to whom more is given, more is expected… 9) Suffering has great value, when I Myself chose it for the salvation of man. For that I also send it to those souls that have been chosen by the Father for a determined end. But they must accept it voluntarily without weakness, as painful and bitter as it may be. I will be your comfort and your friend…

THE PENANCE I WANT IS “INTERIOR PENANCE” CL-61
1)

12-Jan-96

Jesus

I will concern Myself in the penances that you do without them appearing before the eyes of men. But we must understand each other well. What is the penance that I want from you? 2) I want to be clear when I tell you that the penance of these times must be the one that produces spiritual strength, that is, you must not offer things, as when humanity was young, but rather affection. This is the penance of the great, the former of the insignificant. At that time I wanted those manifestations; today I want more. My beloved ones and whoever practices less does not do My Will. 3) You must pay a lot of attention to depriving yourselves of those things that are not things but rather affections. That is why your spirit must sacrifice itself, and the body will easily follow the intention of the spirit. Look into it well because if you do it thus, My Words will prove true to the letter concerning the way to appear outwardly when doing penance. No one must know; I know it and that is enough. 4) Beloved ones, learn from Me to make interior sacrifices and to grow before My very eyes. 5) If I want, I will give the great exterior penitence, and then you will do it. But the main penance is still and will continue to be the interior one.

amid the splendor, like a bridge of unity between the Old and the New Testament. 2) My Father wanted three of My disciples to be present at My Transfiguration, Peter among them. And He wanted it so that they would be My witnesses and not forget that before the shame, the splendor was manifested in Me. Thus I left the remembrance of majesty to My own, but so that it would serve as confirmation of My Divine work of salvation. 3) Nobody prevented Me from giving My manifestation to the people or other wiser and well deserved persons. But I wanted to limit Myself to only three among Mine, because before anything else, I had to accomplish My mission in the greatest possible secrecy… It was necessary to proceed step by step and adapt My work to the wise design that the Father wanted to slowly carry out among men. 4) Peter’s expressions are the same ones that today are repeated by men, drawn but weak. Can you not understand what it is I wish to tell you? You must take everything from Me, light and darkness; you must not choose because you do not know what I need. 5) Let this show you that your teacher worries a lot about you and that He does not abandon you, even though it might seem so… Without doubt, the road that I propose to you is difficult, but it is possible to walk it with Me. And so, Tabor or Calvary, but always with Me in faith, in trust, and in certainty.

Moses represented the old Judaism; Elijah the future Judaism, the one I will redeem with Me making use of him and with Me in the middle,
30 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

1) I want absolute sincerity from you as it is needed in pursuing the Truth, as it is the antithesis of the avalanche of lies that surround My chosen ones. And I want it, not only because he who belongs to Me must be truthful, but also for the exercise on which depends a great deal of glory in Heaven. 2) The field of lies is made by those who deceive so much that they even deceive themselves. Truth, on the other hand, truly liberates and frees from the maliciousness that produces lies. 3) We will talk of two groups of people: one group attempts to make up lies and deceive themselves in being able to do it with the weapon of truth. But which truth? One distorted by deception; one built on lies. They are the ones who will not be forgiven because they make use of good and truth in order to do evil and utter lies. They sin against the Holy Spirit and turn into falsehood all the help I give them and color it with disloyalty. How will they be able to come close to the light if they change it for very

dense darkness? 4) But there is another group that lives on the margin of the truth and does not wish to come into it. They are the fainthearted who because of human fear and selfish caution scorn the beauty in which the truth is dressed. I suffered a lot for them too. 5) Who then will have My approval? The ones who live committed to the truth and do not fear the consequences. My beloved know these things and confirm them with their works and words. They do not ask Me like Pontius Pilate: “What is the truth?”, without having had the complete answer to their question. They do not run away from Me, but rather seek Me and confess passionately to Me by telling the truth. 6) For this reason, be honest, sincere, truthful, coherent with yourselves and desirous of knowing and practicing everything that I teach you: that is to tell the truth.

HAPPY THE ONES WHO LISTEN TO MY VOICE CL-64
1)

12-Jan-96

Jesus

If a coachman whips his horse on a slope and with his shouts spurs his beast on to reach the summit, it is to be expected that the faithful animal, amid the fatigue, will not go backwards because the owner’s voice and his whippings will push him up the hill taking the coach and coachman up the wearying path. But if the horse shows itself incapable of going forward, the intelligent guide will not force his beast too much and will try to reduce the fatigue by taking an oblique path up the slope. This will lengthen the way a little but finally they will arrive at the top. 2) This is what I do with the souls that wish to climb the mountain of My Love. When it is possible, I guide them so that they climb by the direct route. When exhaustion overcomes them, I lessen the fatigue with some oblique zigzag in the path. And the souls always climb to the top if they listen to Me. But, I do not have a whip in hand; My voice is enough: very sweet and very potent. 3) Happy are those who listen to My voice, My encouragement. What could make the soul that listens to My voice go back? If I speak, who could cover My tone? By its sweetness I am truly a nightingale; I know how to call and attract with extreme delicacy. How the soul that listens to Me hears much refinement in My voice! 4) For this reason I am here to declare to you that I must necessarily make you listen to Me because you are Mine in a divine way. 5) Those who love things in an unruly way, what can they understand? What do they understand

when I tell them that I must concern Myself with you because you belong to Me, soul and body? 6) They know about ownership in the sense of usefulness of property, but their God does not love to have some benefit nor is He moved by passion… They would have to be pure, free of all their selfesteem, of all lustfulness. Then they could have an idea of how I treat them. And this is what they do not understand when they see Me nailed on the Cross. They do not understand that what moves Me is pure love, the love that saves, the love that fears nothing in order to bring happiness to the creatures to whom He so generously gave of Himself and by Himself, the creatures that were made to enjoy My same happiness. That is, the happiness that is based on the infinite, that has immortality as its boundaries, and the infinite light as its framework. 7) You who listen to Me, believe in My Love, but believe that in manifesting My Will to you by dealing with you as My belongings, I want you to allow yourselves to be led by Me with total trust. Because not only do I know what I am doing, but what I do is dictated by My Heart, the pure lover of mankind to whom I wish to give enormous treasures as long as they do not reject Me, as long as they do not forget Me. 8) Sway, you souls that belongs to Me, the torch that I give you to light the way for your brothers. The light must not be placed under a sack. I want it on high to light the house. Light the food that I have My beloved ones bring. Illuminate the faces of those who look at Me and you will have accomplished your work. Over there are they if they turn to look at the darkness. I guide you; you imitate Me. Do the same and you will please Me… I give you My pains as a present, thank you for consoling Me.

You, however, value the choice and listen to the story that I will tell You: 2) Once there was a tall and strong man, who departed for the towns and cities teaching things never before heard. People were attracted to that man and everyone who heard Him was astounded. He gave advice, spoke of His Father, and called all who listened to Him brothers. It seemed that time spent MESSAGES 31

with Him had always been short, so people came back to Him, eager to listen to Him, enraptured with His affable manner. 3) But one day some wicked men became envious of Him and swore to kill Him. They were mean individuals who were afraid to lose their own prestige; they were the insincere ones who feared His Word that knew no human fears. For this reason they had Him arrested and crucified between two thieves; He died, forgiving His executioners…

THE VICTIMS OF MY LOVE HAVE A MOTTO: SACRIFICE CL-66
1)

13-Jan-96

Jesus

The victims of My Love are chosen from a restricted number of souls whom I mark with My Love. They are crucified to the world and from the world they receive sorrows, not the sorrows that pride causes each one, but rather the grief that compensates for the sins of the world. The one that I choose must not worry about himself, because the true victim has a motto one word: sacrifice. I select the souls that I Myself predispose for that service; otherwise, no one would be fitting because this work is not only difficult, but impossible for the creature. 2) In the unlimited horizon of the Redemption, I do not want to be alone. My Father has sent Me. I unite Myself with others who will give testimony of My redeeming work, precisely to have reproduced in them some of My characteristics as universal Victim, Victim for everyone. 3) My victims do not have in themselves the strength because they are, as everyone else, deprived of strength. My victims have no virtue unless shared, and have no love unless received from Me. Nevertheless, they can do everything I wish to the point that one of those victims can place himself between Satan and the poor sinner, defeating the first and consoling the second. 4) I want to give relief to the heart of one victim; I want to open My Spirit and comfort her. 5) And you, do you love Me? Oh fatigued soul, do you wish to lean a little on My arm? Come, come to Me to rest a little; you must take refuge in My arms because there is still more for you. Look at My hands, lean your head on My side! You must believe that I love you, but not as much as you think, because I love you much, much more. And, jewel of My Heart, open for Me the path that will give you the happiest union with Me. Open that heart of yours, because I must actually place a thorn from My crown in it. And, I do not talk in metaphors; you will feel it; you will see that in having made yourself My 32 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

victim of love, the greatest glory will be for you because everyone will see how I delight in you. 6) And do you love Me? Repeat it again, always tell Me that you love Me. Each time that you tell Me, you satisfy this thirst that consumes Me, that parches Me so much. You know it, I have few souls and, I want those few to be all Mine, only Mine. I will provide you with everything; you must not think about anything but My Love. This is the only problem in your life and, to love is your task; to love when others do not; to love when others sin; to love when others sleep, are disturbed, distance themselves, get lost… You must love as I want: passionately, hopelessly. 7) If you do this, I will make you remove the veil of mystery and you will see what you do not see now and would want to see. I will not hide anything from you if you give yourself totally to Me… Search, search in your soul if there is something you have not given Me. I want everything and I will give you everything… And do you love Me?

prayer I accept and listen to can be made any time, in any place, without external conditions, as long as it is truly felt and completely in accordance with My wishes. 2) Do not ponder if, with deeds, I answer that My hour has not yet come, as I said at Cana. I am accustomed to doing it this way so that whoever implores Me, will be very desirous of what he asks for, and at the same time will render Me worship, a necessary condition for the attainment of Paradise. Yes, a necessary condition, because upon listening to it, I also will have in view before Me mainly the future life in which you will find all desires fulfilled. 3) I do not wish for you to look for a grace at each step, because you must value, more so than you do, the graces that I grant without you asking Me for them. I do not want you to think that you are alone when I have already manifested to you, in an open or veiled manner, that I always help you, all the time. But I approve that you, pressed by grave necessities, come to remedy them by disclosing your impotence to Me and thus asking for My help and protection. 4) How great it is to attend to those whom one loves! How pleasant it is to give a creature something that will be of help or comfort, more so when it means to give a loved one the pleasure of fanning the air that surrounds them. It is wonderful to help one who is loved and I assure everyone that I experience greater joy in giving then you in receiving.

Thus you must believe and not assume that if I make it known to you that My time has not yet come, it is because I do not want to listen to you. Do you understand now? 6) Otherwise, may it remain very firm in your mind that I watch over you, infinitely more than you think and that nothing escapes Me, absolutely nothing, of what you say happens to you. Am I not the Good Shepherd who has known how to give His life for His sheep? And to give My life is immensely more than to give that solace that you ask of Me, the minimum graces that you need. To the one who does not understand the significance of those words, that is, hearing and maybe believing, is a child that does not understand anything but his own comfort and forgets that I, more than anything, have given My life for you. 7) I am a Father who feeds babies and wants some of them to grow and come to be an offspring that joyfully would go about My house, to make celebrations all around Me. For this reason I speak of prayer, of the joy that I experience in listening to you and of the greater joy that I have in denying you certain things, with the purpose of weaning you and making you grow beautiful and strong in front of Me. The one who is father or mother among you, reflect and say what difference is there between listening to the lament of a baby who avidly seeks his food and, the frank pleading of a child who, tired of running through the house, comes and says to you: “Dad, mom, I am hungry.” I tell you, to the baby you will give some sweet milk and will put him down to rest, while to the child you will give a good meal with much more substance than the milk and you will be much happier to see this child eat than the baby. 8) Children! I delight in giving all that I have, but I do not give without foreseeing the good that I must give you. Speak, seek, and always desire My Wish that is just, holy, full of love, and very prudent. The more you do My Will, the more you will come to be loved by Me and, consequently, you will find your prayers well received.

MY VICAR: VICTIM PLEASING TO MY EYES CL-68

14-Jan-96

Jesus

My Heart saddens because My Vicar is surrounded and besieged by enemies who, as hungry beasts, would like to tear apart his heart, formed according to Mine… In that heart they wish to once again drive in the lance that opened My side, to assure themselves that I, in My Church, have died forever. 2) Yes the lance pierced My side, entering the Heart,

thus the world was redeemed; also in his heart, by the open wound in his chest, love gushes forth to help Me in the redemption of the world. 3) Humanity needs many victims, atoning victims that will appease the Divine anger; his sacrificed heart has an immense value. Those who hate him most will carve the pedestal of his glory. 4) Those who now triumph will disappear like smoke, while he, dejected and withstanding all kinds of pains, will resist the beatings of the storm. 5) This victim, so pleasing to My eyes, uniting himself to My Heart sacrifices himself and suffers for iniquities. Fixing My eyes on the world – and only because of that, he has merited that I not permit him to perish. 6) All who have escaped corruption, unite yourselves and offer with him your sufferings and your hearts with Mine. 7) The sin that comes from the modern Babylon, more evil and abominable than that of Belshazzar, has corrupted everything and few are the ones that have not been contaminated. 8) Babylon, you will see yourself surrounded by flames; the Divine fire will fall upon you! Those that adored you, ignite the flames up to the bowels of your land! Your worshipers will perish with you, den of filthy beasts! You who have raised yourself in your pride, proclaiming yourself queen of the world and civilization, snatching away from Me the sovereignty of saving souls; the hurricane of My wrath will expel your ashes and those of your worshipers, sons of Satan. Your memory shall be cursed… You shall see Rome rise, full of power and beauty, as the wife of the Lamb. 9) You preferred Satan’s dominion to that of My loving Heart. That is why, turning into a great demon, that prostitute which seduces the world, you have deserved the Divine curse and will be erased from the face of the earth. Humanity will be purified without you. 10) It would seem that I hide Myself and abandon My Church, and it is with that I prove and increase their faith, inciting their love. I give proof that I am here and I guard the integrity of My Spouse. My Heart gives her the breath that makes her and will make her strong… until eternity. 11) The last thrashings of the beast are of triumph, filling with consternation the heart of the Pontiff who sees the earth divided now. But the strength of evil will not last much longer; it will destroy itself. I will confuse the proud and place My Divine Heart in the spouse’s breast. This signal shall be the shield where all the intents of the infernal spirit to silence her will crash. MESSAGES 33

My Reign is much closer than what you all can imagine. But before that, men are going to destroy each other because of that unlimited ambition for power, riches, and dominion. Man has forgotten My Law and marches in an unbridled race towards his imminent ruin. 2) My Reign is going to implant itself in those who, maintaining their heart and spirit clean, knew how to make of whatever is around them an altar in which My image reigns. 3) The Pope will see the destruction of Rome and the Vatican trampled and plundered, and he will suffer as the Father of Christianity. From his lips will pour forth an anathema against those who, forgetting their faith, will unite with the Beast. The experiences that he is going to suffer, and what he is going to see, will make him kneel and lift his arms to beg, demanding forgiveness. 4) For My Reign on earth, it is necessary that My Justice must walk hand in hand with My Love. For this, there are souls that anxiously follow the divine route of resignation. Men do not recognize the significance of that resignation! Their offenses keep accumulating for their perdition! They run the path of pleasure and licentiousness as frenzied beasts! 5) I want to free men of countless evils; I want for youth to direct themselves toward My Heart, to learn about the Truth, so that the lie of the Beast will not pierce their hearts. 6) I want all the sufferings of humanity to be united voluntarily to those that My Heart suffered, so that this sacrifice may be the best sacrifice through which men find God. 7) The souls that I elect, I submit in this world to a constant progression of purification, to a dark night where the Divine Love will be their only comfort and desire. This purification is contrary to human nature, but is a fountain of good for the soul… 8) While others destroy, you work tirelessly. I want everyone to make a visit to those who suffer: the sick, the prisoners, and the needy. Ask them to offer their sufferings to the suffering of My Divine Heart. The penitence of these souls will be the triumph of My Church… Do not lose hope if someone does not seem to listen. Once the seed sown, I will do the rest. Build the foundations of My Empire of Love. 9) Obtain prints of the Sacred Hearts, make copies, spread this devotion because in the ocean of love of these hearts, 34 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

the ship of My Church will run aground. On the reverse it will say: “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of all armies, full are the heavens and earth of the majesty of Your Glory. Glory to the Father, Glory to the Son, Glory to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be. Jesus, Mary I love you, save souls.” 10) All the consecrated souls to our Hearts form part of this army and their prayers and penances are the weapons with which the enemy will be crushed. Pray everyone so that this will be soon!

WHEN I TOOK YOUR HEART, I GAVE YOU MINE CL-70

14-Jan-96

Jesus

When I took your heart and gave you Mine, it was a mystical exchange. In your heart I laid My Love, My feelings, My grief and anguish, My happiness, and My pains. You must have felt in you some of what I suffered for mankind; you must have felt with Me the redemption of sinners; for that reason, through participation, your heart should have become like Mine. That is the flame that you sometimes feel consuming you; that anguish that drowns you is the pain that pierces your heart. In this way you atone for the faults of so many sinners who caused those pains to My Heart. 2) If I took your heart, it was to guard it from evil, to bring new life to it, and keep it united to Mine in a continuous union of love in suffering. Whenever you feel that fluttering, it is My Heart beating out of love for some ungrateful creature. Pray then for that creature to return to the right path, to love, to My Heart. Go to the Garden of Olives and think that you are sharing those sufferings with Me.

Not all Christians follow Me, inasmuch as some are Christians only because of the right I have over them, not because they really follow Me. For that reason it is not an exaggeration to say that few are true Christians. This tells everyone how much I suffer in those Christians who are worthy of Me… I do not force the meaning of human words. 2) I use you to make it known that I continue granting Mercy to those who belong to Me and do not want to; I will make use of the Samaritan’s mercy towards this injured humanity who is there lying down without hope. I have said Mercy and Compassion, because today more than ever they are necessary for Me to continue My work and for it to grow. 3) Soul of Mine, My Love’s fire from which you receive so many sparks is incomprehensible and, al-

though believed, is not known. But it is well known by he, who extinguishing his own zeal, is prepared to receive My sparks. 4) I have few hearts who receive everything I want; I almost have to contain My Love because they reject Me. 5) Do you really want to give Me shelter in you? Do you want Me to make My abode effectively in you? Tell Me “yes” and you will compensate Me for so many “nos”; tell Me that you want to and you will compensate Me for so many refusals. My loved one, tell Me you are going to accept, because it is sweet to know that you love Me. 6) My benevolence is enclosed in the petition I make to you. 7) I have told you of My Love. Now tell Me, what is your love for Me?

you tell Me with intimate conviction: Your Will be done. I say apostle because you go with the “FIAT” of all the souls who, also struggling, are regulated by My Desire. And as your good is the good of all who loves Me, so is the good of all the proclaimers of My Kingdom your good, exchanging in this way the treasures contained in the FIAT. 5) You will be astonished and know My goodness even more when I show you the meaning of these prayers that amid suffering you address to Me. It is right: among all My children I love, I have Jesus My beloved, so beloved that He would be enough for Me. But I have also loved others with preference and, I do not conceal from you that you and your brethren are among these. 6) My daughter, many brethren are in sin’s penalty of death. Implore for them and I bless you, you and them, and I place them on the most pure hands of she, who trembling with love, embraced My beloved Jesus.

It has been a labor of My Love to have made you move along the dangerous road until reaching a certain level, and it can be assessed as one third of the journey. 2) You know that on the road I have had to detain you many times because you wanted to return to the whirlwind of sin… You, old sinner, wanted to become My declared enemy and, I tell you, you would have been a strong one and would possibly positioned yourself up front among those who hate Me… I mention this to convince you that each moment is for you an alternative of evil and good. And do you know why I allow you to oscillate between “no” and “yes” - in order to strengthen your “yes”. The game bothers you but it is necessary; the enemy is vain and violent, but you must get used to this. So many souls are waiting for a sign from Me to honor you in Heaven! But this will be done in due course and My work will appear in the light of My Love among the canticle of all My children and the praises of your most beloved Mother. I will honor whoever honors Me, and whoever worships Me, will be loved by all who honor Me. 3) Oh, My daughter, how beautiful it is to hear My name sanctified with fervent lips and heart! Nothing is worth more than prayer directed at Me with the sole purpose of making the world know Me, so that other lips will invoke Me and praise Me. 4) Indeed, in this way My name sanctified and, when you, sighing, ask My Kingdom to come, I assure you that you will directly participate in all of the hardships of My chosen ones, wherever they may be. And you are an apostle each time that, struggling,

PROGRESS TOWARDS THE JUSTIFICATION OF LOVE CL-73

15-Jan-96

Jesus

As dawn approaches the night grows lighter, yielding its own darkness to the rising rays; therefore, when the sun rises, every nocturnal trace is dispersed giving way to the day. During summer it is easier to see the natural progress between night and day. During winter it is more likely that the sunrise appears behind a layer of clouds. But the power of the rays increases and they penetrate through the same clouds and where other causes do not impede it, daylight comes slower than in the summer. 2) Deductions are easy if these natural spectacles are taken as symbols of the supernatural. 3) The soul who is in the cold winter of love, that is to say the one who loves Me little, has illuminations corresponding to the illuminations of winter such as: long nights, uncertain daybreak (not very luminous), lower temperatures. He sees the sun of the truth with discomfort because of the diverse clouds that obstruct perfect vision; he has perfectly clear days yet cold and, when he sees Me, he does not warm up enough. It is winter in his soul which does not adapt very well to Me and, consequently, receives indirect rays on those perfectly clear days. Apart from this, he goes from one cloudy day to another, from the coldness to the poverty of its flowers and fruit. 4) It is different for whoever finds himself in the summer of My Love. Dew, light, warmth, flowers, fruit in quantity and only briefly if any, temporary squalls are given to the soul who loves Me much. The sun’s joy is more intense in the summer of the MESSAGES 35

soul, because he receives greater warmth and more intense light than in his winter of coldness and darkness. And that soul does not experience the suffocating sultry weather because I put him in the woods of very pure air, so much so that he approaches Me in an admirable way and, as such, falls in love with Me. 5) My beloved ones, do your souls approach the summer that I have described? What do you resemble – winter or summer? I would be happy as long as it were spring for everyone, but I must tell you, many do not go forward and they remain firm in their cold season, shivering and rarely warm. 6) Who will give them warmth, oh My beloved cold ones? Without Me they will have no warmth, yet without you I do not want to give them the warmth they lack. If they make no effort to give Me their wills, they will remain as they are. They will never experience change and if they do not turn backwards, good for you. 7) I offer you simple and efficient means of entering, at least into spring, but give Me proof of your acceptance, because otherwise My Love without limits would be worth nothing. 8) Do you really want to warm yourself with My burning rays? Do you want to leave winter? Well then, do everything as you did before, without any additions, but begin to reflect on the motive for which you work, pray, eat, sleep, etc. You will find that you yourselves are the object of your actions. The point is this: verify your state of love and gradually progress towards the purification of love. That means to pray for a better motive, which will be more beautiful as it is identified with the motive I ascribe to each of your actions. 9) Reflect: What can be the reason for God wanting this of me? This is your part, the rest is Mine, because it is natural for Me to guide each one of you in a different way, be it in consideration to the nature I have given you, the Grace you receive, or the purpose I have proposed in each one of you. 10) I ask everyone for nothing extraordinary but reflection and for now, you must climb the steps one by one. When the steps are big, you will accelerate the pace…

that would come to Me from souls called with so much affection and who would answer with so little decisiveness. 3) Everything is written here in My Heart; everything has been sculpted by coarse hands of cold men, insensitive to My Love. But do not think that I do not forget… On the contrary, I want to offer you My sorrowful Heart; I am mournful for you. 4) Know how to understand Me; wish to understand Me and accept My gift and painful lament. 5) My souls, I call you to love. To love…

I offer you My aching Heart in exchange for your coldness, doubts, and rejection. I offer it to you heart-stricken so that it can tell you just how much sadness you have given Me with your way of following Me. 2) I have experienced the bitterness of abandonment 36 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

Tired from the journey, I sat near the well where Jacob used to draw water for himself and for his flocks and, while waiting for the return of My disciples, a Samaritan woman came to draw water. 2) “Give Me a drink,” I told her for I was really thirsty. You know the rest… I wanted so much to lower Myself, even to show signs of My needs, because through the same human need, I would conquer that soul and many more. My act was also for the future. 3) Now think, who comes to meet My desires, he who changes his attitude with human reasoning (like the Samaritan at the beginning), or he who barely hears My demands and leaves? How many times do I ask, directly or through other creatures, and you will not believe Me! You cannot listen because your hearts are hardened. I wish you would continuously ask Me: what do you want, Jesus? 4) But My Love will make you sweet, will make you supple and attentive to Me and to your brethren so that you will know what you should do for Me. Take notice of these expressions of politeness because for Me they are most cherished sweetness. Love refines and knows how to govern one’s instincts. 5) For that reason I repeat: give Me to drink, for I am thirsty after such a long journey. If you do not understand what it means to be thirsty for the person loved, at least you will understand that many, very many, deny Me their souls and, therefore, My thirst is unsatisfied because of so many rejections. 6) I am alone, without reluctance I tell you that those who profess faith, also love Me very little. They too…! With exceptions, I meet lack of love and infidelity everywhere. 7) They wonder so much at why things are not going the way they want them to go. What should I say after having suffered so much in seeing the ac-

cumulation of human incomprehension? What should I say in seeing that, in spite of all My generosity, there reigns among My people so much personal interest? What must I say, I who is waiting for you to have time to work on My matters that ultimately will serve to save so many of your brothers? 8) Once an apostle betrayed Me; today in the best of the hypotheses, I am the great forgotten One! The neglected One! 9) My souls, love is what moves Me to seek you. My Love wants to give you happiness and wants to give it to you because this is My thirst; you should know it. You are My chosen ones, you can quench My thirst; do not resist, do not be like the Samaritan, do not see Me as a foreigner like she did. 10) I am your life, your salvation, your joy, your happiness, your light, your way, your good-fortune, your dignity, your well being, your everything. My souls, so loved: I am the water that takes away your thirst, the water that washes you, the water that purifies you, the water that cools the burning of your wounds (oh, you have so many!), the water that makes you well, the water that takes you to the infinite ocean of My own Love. 11) Do not be Samaritans too. Never be satiated with Me, you must become as many more Marys. 12) May My particular emphasis of today make you think. I desire that you be examined, each one on your own account and that you remove, with My painstaking help, all the causes that prevent you from being united to Me. I call you to practice, that is, to address contradiction. Always love Me and do not allow this word “contradiction” to remain locked in the vocabulary, because then you could run the risk of finding My Heart closed to you. Closed, understanding with regard to the beneficial effects in you, because even if you were to refuse to contradict yourselves because of Me, I would never stop loving you infinitely. 13) Therefore, give Me your souls and I will aide you immensely, calming the thirst of My Love. 14) Give Me your will and, above all, your judgment; I mean, make the sacrifice of one and of the other because, in short, giving Me your soul means exactly this. And while you sacrifice each other to Me, I will share My Divinity in you. 15) You all give Me a miserable creature. I give you Myself. Is this not an acceptable exchange? Do you not feel attracted to the One who knows to give you the infinite for little more than nothing? 16) Oh, if you only knew how much the souls in Purgatory want to be consumed, in order to receive Me in the happiness of Paradise! They see the value of the contradiction very well, and if I were to permit

it, they would return to you, to dedicate themselves to this one exercise: to surrender to Me through the annoyances. And so they remain in that purifying fire that cancels all particles of their will and destroys all bonds that prevents them from flying to Me. Learn from them, learn; experience great calmness, great peace, and relief… Remember I am thirsty!

YOU APPRECIATE MAN’S HELP MORE THAN MINE CL-76
15-Jan-96 Jesus

1) Trust, in order to be complete, should not depend on any human element either today or tomorrow. For the lukewarm it is necessary to find human support because they do not find stability in Me; but My chosen ones should expect it all. I have directed many through the road of perfect trust, but few have arrived where I had called them because, in the blindness of their intelligence, they appreciate man’s help rather then Mine. They have believed more in the word of a creature than in that of the Creator. For that reason, there is a crowd of discontented people who are at a standstill at My Father’s house. They are determined and indecisive, dissatisfied and opposed, and they implore Me with desires and words to give them what they long for. Perhaps I do not hear their sighs, do not understand what they long for? 2) Well I hear them but I pretend not to hear. To these determined and indecisive ones, I have prepared to give them much, much more and My Love forbids Me to listen to them. Many go back because they do not want to understand Me! Many discontented ones ask for a crumb of bread, while I want to give them a magnificent banquet! Courage, My creatures! I want to tell you, My love, the most sublime saints lived similar games and now they rejoice for having left that mouthful with which they would have momentarily satisfied their hunger, because even before calling them to Glory, I made them sit at a table in which they ate, not human crumbs, but the substance and life of My Divinity. 3) My creatures, satisfy yourselves in Me, because I am eternal and substantial nourishment; consume the chalices I present to you, because in them you will find everlasting sweetness. 4) What does it matter to the hunter to hurl himself between thicket and thorns, as long as he can reach his prey? I am your prey and I will allow Myself to be completely seized by you when you will have fallen completely into My Love. No mouthfuls for you, I do not wish to give you pieces of bread because I love you with predilection. I want to give you victory over yourselves, not a passing conquest, but an MESSAGES 37

15-Jan-96 Jesus

1) My daughter, so beloved, you all ask Me, why this avalanche of messages? I do not want to sadden you, although I said that My messages had ended for the group, I had My reasons for it. 2) The messages for the second book ended in September, three months have passed and you are still thinking about printing it. How do you think I will settle your problems if you all do not devote yourselves to Mine? I am not angry; I love you too much. Do not think like that; it is only that I feel defrauded. It was not impossible to work on it; simply you have not thought about the fact that the origin of things is always tightly united to the vital beginning that proceeds from Me and without this beginning, nothing exists. If you all had placed first things first, many things would be resolved. 3) Do not attempt to read this – what we have been working on – to anyone, until the last book is edited. What are you waiting for? There is paper and the necessary machines. When your matters are urgent, you rush to solve them. And Mine? Can they wait? Can they be postponed? 4) Do not be sad, I assure you that it is not your fault but, upon concluding these messages, I will cease this type of communication with you… It is a necessary part of your growth. Believe in Me; I want to educate you and with you whoever wants to be educated. My intentions, My Will is for you to learn to find Me and converse with Me in another way… 5) Trust Me, give Me your hand, just like up to now, blindly of your Savior’s hand… And you, do you love Me? 6) These notebooks, beside My Love, should be your daily bread and nourishment of those to whom your reading matter is destined. I will guide you, do not be afraid, My little one.

thing without waiting for Me to give you the results of the actions; from the disappointments you suffer, you actually think you can extract the consequences of having erred. This is not always true. Many times the college student’s homework is also deprived of evaluation because the teacher gives it from time to time and not for each assignment. Therefore, it is evident that I do not treat everyone the same way and I manifest only what helps My beloved ones. 3) Let Me do My thing, each one of you is assisted by Me in a special way and to each one I offer the nourishment needed. Do you know what happens? That by force of searching, the creature discovers that this or that does not work and that such a thing is uncertain and something else is suspicious. So, between suspicions, they waste very precious time. 4) He who directs his soul towards Me, does not stumble on these things, because for him it is enough to have known from the point of departure that what he had to do was of My liking. Then if he has erred or not, it is My business to make him know it and it is evident that he will know it only if I want. 5) My students, learn from your Teacher because only He has words and eternal life. Learn from Me who said: I always do the things that please My Father and that many times do not please men. 6) He who imitates Me wants this, and this he always seeks: the Desire of the Father in the satisfaction of the Son and for the love of the Holy Spirit.

How much a mother loves her child can be seen from her maternal kisses and caresses. This is yet more evident if the sacrifices that she secretly makes for her child are known. Multiply this affection by five, ten children and you will see how much a mother can sacrifice herself and how much she can love her children. 2) Our Mother, the one “without stain” who gave Me human life, has loved this loveless generation of children, has embraced them tightly, has known all their faults, and has forgiven them the great pain they have caused Her. 3) All mothers must procreate their children, more so with the spirit than with the body. She must transfuse in them treasures greater than the human life, and must give her children all that is beautiful and great in her soul. It is said: “blood can bind so much.” How much more can a mother’s love for her children bind? Ah! It is not blood that binds, but love, because love comes before blood, because love lasts long after death.

What happened to My Mother when I poured into Her the maternal affection for you too? She became the small, great woman who accepted a countless offspring for My Love, Her most Beloved Son. And while She received from Me so much goodness, that it can be said She came to be the fountain of love, from you, the present day generation, She received countless thorns and sorrows. 5) Thus She loves you above all because of My Love and because you have made Her suffer so much. For that reason I grant Her the right to make of you a shrine of mercy, over which She will be celebrated in a grand style. She must save you, I want it; She must look after Her family and guide them to Me. 6) So many blaspheme against Her! So many have forgotten Her! So many cover their ears and have fled from Her! But I love Her; I have made Her extremely powerful. I will not permit you all to insult Her anymore; She is extremely dear to Me! 7) For that reason She will soon clean house. Nevertheless, She is among you and is pointing out Her good children. Listen to Her! She is so good; She knows how to understand everyone, how to forget all offenses. Pay attention to Her!

I INSPIRE PERFECT WORK, YOU ARE FREE TO FULFILL IT OR NOT CL-80
1)

15-Jan-96

God the Father

The beginning and lifetime of human actions is the motion that I imprint on all creatures. The man whom I have made free and autonomous does not think that his working, seeing, thinking, and even his suffering are actions dependent of a first cause that has control over all those things. But it is a most gentle control that produces unimpaired, the great gift I have given them: freedom. Because of that man moves freely, in spirit and in body. But while he makes full use of his freedom, he is moved by Me, he has the inclination but is not obligated because he acts freely. 2) There are involuntary movements before which the creature is not able to react, but they are either all Mine or all human. I will explain. In My infinite Love for the creature, I desire that sometimes actions be fulfilled without the usual defects, the customary renouncements, so that the creature may have in his assets, actions and thoughts that are perfectly similar to My Desire. Then I diffuse Myself in such a way that his work and desire is truly My work and My desire. 3) Certain manifestations that I bring about in My saints are an example of these things. But one should

not object that their will is lacking in this, on the contrary. The will in these cases is fully adhered to Me and if it acts with obligation, for this reason it does not stop acting freely. This is the way it is in Heaven; when it is also done on earth, it is Heaven anticipated… These are what I have called involuntary things of Mine; therefore, that is the way they are. 4) But there are other things and they are the human things: the discourse that changes. If in the involuntary good things, the greatest part of the work is Mine; in the evil or human things, the greatest part is yours. And so the soul, having become totally inclined towards evil, can only act according to the bad habits that it has voluntarily and gradually acquired. 5) This is how the soul finds itself when it is completely with Me and when it is by itself. 6) But you know that upon creating, moving, and providing for My beloved ones, I have as an aim, mainly the Glory of My beloved Son. Furthermore, foreseeing that each one of you would not do much to fulfill My Desire, I created a creature so beautiful and holy that by herself she surpasses all creatures and alone gives more glory to My Son than all the others together. This creature is the shining mirror on which the Word reflects and, like all mirrors, reflects such rays of light and fire that it does not really seem to be a mirror but light and fire. He, My Son, could have many images of Himself, but one would be such that it would be confused with the original. Oh, how it pleases Me to reproduce the Word! 7) Do you see then what My Will points to and how petty is man’s reasoning? But, what is human reasoning in comparison to Divine Desire? Is love for oneself and one's reasoning not like the night in comparison to the radiant day that is My reasoning and My Desire...? How man argues over this point! But as long as he does not leave himself, he will have no peace. Renounce himself, lose himself in Me, dissolve himself in Me and the creature will live off Me…

MY KINGDOM IS NEAR CL-81

15-Jan-96

Jesus

The Kingdom of My Heart is written in the great book of all time. Mine is a Heart of Love, resurrected and eternal. Its time has come. 2) It is necessary to offer that the souls, besides loving Me, make My Word be the seed that bears fruit in the prepared land. The sinners who return repentant will not find My face angered, nor reproaches on My lips. 3) My Kingdom is near. Beforehand, however, great things will happen; the world will marvel, for all the MESSAGES 39

people will humble themselves before My sovereignty, praising My Heart. 4) This Heart of Mine suffers because each day the number of sins that are committed is greater; greater each time are the sufferings that afflict it filling it with bitterness. You do not know, nor could you imagine the number of sins, blasphemes, and sacrileges; the lukewarmness and indifference of so many souls that call themselves kind and their compassion is only a cover for hypocrisy… 5) My Heart is a burning furnace, passionate of love for the salvation of souls; it bleeds and suffers. Day after day men go on accumulating iniquities for their own damnation. This is My torment! 6) My mission of exterior pain ended on earth, but I will continue suffering and giving courage with My infinite merits to the suffering of My chosen and victim souls. They are My crown! 7) My Heart is the center of all love. My Kingdom is of the saving Love. Love is the pulse of the sacrifice, and the sacrifice is the pulse of love… My pierced Heart on the Cross is the sanctuary of real love. The Cross is the throne of My Kingdom of love. 8) This Kingdom of love will be implanted in those who, maintaining their heart and spirit clean, would know how to make of all that surrounds them an altar where My image reigns.

I GAVE YOU REDEMPTION AND NOBLENESS CL-82

15-Jan-96

Jesus

The first time I cried from pain, was caused by a drop of Blood that would assign to Me ownership of the Jewish world, in which the ceremonies had arisen for the justification of the spirit. I cried because I was washing with those tears all the past generation run aground on the riverbanks external from the spirit. And with those tears, later were justified all the Jews who would perform the same ceremony. 2) Who would think that in the life I led, besides an excellent symbolism, I put in each action the redemption of man's so many faults. On the whole I freed everyone, but in particular, I have given to each one the possibility to possess that equivalent contrast between materiality and the spirit. Anything done without My Wisdom does not take the opportunity to become transformed by My Divine actions. I have offered everything to the creature, all the collection of riches still unexplored, and without Me having offered a perfect exchange of perfection and Redemption, there is no action, thinking, desire, nothing which concerns him. 3) The circumcision was the beginning of My acts understood in that sense, and desired in order to 40 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

give men the possibility of protecting themselves with My actions. 4) But My people wish to go farther when considering Redemption under the profile of the liberation from the slavery of sin and rather it is I who inclines them towards these considerations. But it also pleases Me to tell you this: I want you to know that I have seen to it that you have Redemption from everything and absolute nobleness even in your daily chores, because by superimposing Myself on you, like I have done, you will still be worthy of the transitory things and of the nature that I have taken for you. 5) My daughter, so beloved! My small hidden flower! I am near you… Offer Me your sufferings to help Me in the beautiful work of salvation. Come into My Heart and rest there… Suffer everything for love and during the necessary time, for the salvation of other souls. Atonement for love is a great deal more meritorious. I took upon Me the faults of all men in order to redeem them. I suffered all kinds of pain. But it was the love for My Father, the One who moved Me to die for the Love I have for My brethren. 6) Be an instrument of more redemption. I want you to be ignored by everyone and ignored by yourself, for the time being. You must be like a candelabrum always burning in the presence of your God. You are My Heart’s rest; in My Heart, accepting your sufferings, you will find the love you give Me increased a hundredfold. Count the many lines you have written in this book, multiply them by as much as you want. That equals the times that I tell you how much I love you. If you all knew how to appreciate this love that My Heart has for you, everything would be better in your life.

BOLIVIA IS ON MY MIND AND IN MY HEART… LOOK FOR ME IN THE EUCHARIST CL-83

15-Jan-96

Jesus

Listen, My child. Just like Bolivia is on My mind and in My Heart, I want to be in the thoughts and hearts of the Bolivians, of each Bolivian… I wish for the fire of My Love, present in the Eucharist, to be the one that consumes your hearts and brings you to Me. 2) This Eucharistic love will be the salvation of Bolivia and on behalf of the world. Because of that, I want the day to come when the Eucharist will be exposed daily in all the parishes of Bolivia, beginning with a daily Mass. It is your apostolic work and mission to increase the devotion and worship to My Eucharistic Heart: fountain of Love, Peace, and Truth… 3) Anyone who feels his soul inflamed towards the

Eucharist, and not being able to keep to himself that burning love transmits it to others, and has a home next to My Eucharistic Heart: the shining and bright diamond of the infinite Love. The first one to feel in himself that all-consuming fire was the Beloved Disciple, his is the name of love, then later Pius X and Saint John Bosco. They are three diamonds that repose upon My Heart and they adorn My bosom next to many other saints. So united to Me in love, they have known how to instill in souls the fire in which they were consumed. They are Eucharistic apostles that have known how to spread the Divine seed of My Heart throughout the world. 4) If today this sowing would find fertilized soil in souls duly prepared, it would give the crop what is necessary for humanity’s salvation. I would come among men and reign with them immediately. 5) These souls on fire are needed so that living only on the love of My Eucharistic Heart, they will know how to give themselves, empty themselves, and become intoxicated, intoxicating men’s souls, making them know and love the only thing that can give them that happiness and peace they anxiously seek and will never be able to find in the materialism of the atheistic and impious life of the current times. 6) This happiness is in the inexhaustible fountain of My Heart, resurrected and present alive in the Eucharist, luminous beacon for the soul who navigates without neither course nor port. There the soul will never be able to sink if she is disposed to allow herself to be tied up by the bonds of My Love and Charity without limits, for the sake of the immense love for the salvation of souls. I need souls burned in the fire of that love that will illuminate the rest.

My infinite Charity that is Light, Truth, and Justice in the Love of God the Father, Son, and Spirit.

SALVATION IS IN THE EUCHARIST CL-84

15-Jan-96

Jesus

My Heart keenly desires the salvation of the world. This salvation is in the Eucharist and in the love for My Heart united to the Immaculate Heart of My Mother. She was the one who gave it to Me. I had it because of Her, since because of Her and in Her I became man, for Her I loved, I loved this humanity who does not want to understand Our sacrifice nor Our love. 2) Because of this incomparable sacrifice, this infinite love, I desire to save mankind who is set on seeking its ruin and eternal damnation. That is why I want for all souls to feel inflamed in the Eucharistic love and knowledge and to get ready to take to others what overflows in it and to work, guided only by

was praying for world peace.) This peace, dear daughter, will not be obtained until men want to comprehend that it is found only in the fulfillment of My commandments. 3) As long as the hearts of those who meet to find peace are full of hate, wickedness and pride, cravings for power and sovereignty, selfish interests, thoughts of death and destruction, all those fake attempts for peace, they will not bear any fruit. How are they going to obtain it if they meet to mutually delude themselves? They are led only by personal gain. Do they perhaps think about the one who suffers, the one who falls and dies while they deliberate? 4) They will painfully talk and talk. 5) Mankind moves more and more away from Me, ending up not recognizing Me and hating Me. Humanity persecutes and offends Me, forgetting that I gave My life for them. There are few souls that want to be nailed on the Cross with Me! That want to share My Glory! 6) So that I can make My abode in them, they must help Me drink from the chalice, emptying it, like I did, accepting the pain and suffering as the best gift that they can receive from Me on earth, without waiting for, nor desiring any reward. In one-way or another, I always console and encourage the soul who completely surrenders to Me. 7) In the love for My Heart and that of My Immaculate Mother, they will find the strength that will make them invincible against the Beasts’ attacks. 8) The devotion to My Heart is a source of unequaled graces for the approaching times: because only in this Heart formed in My Mother’s heart can you beg for forgiveness and Mercy for mankind that is in danger of disappearing for its many and horrible crimes. 9) This Heart, which gushed forth even its last drop of blood, asks for love, men’s love – the atonement and penance of all the souls for this new Redemption.

SPREAD THE CRUSADE OF ATONEMENT AMONG PRIESTS CL-86
1)

17-Jan-96

Jesus

My children, spread the Crusade of Atonement among priests. I want to reign through My Heart, since this devotion, reserved by My Love for the salvation of the world, has its moment of extension and increase in all the people. 2) Just like the spirit of evil prepares to overturn the universe, thus I want the devotion to My Heart and to the heart of My Immaculate Mother to be the restraint that through love comes and succeeds in promptly defeating the Beast. This love that is transformed into atonement and penance for man’s horrible sins, may come to those who are identified by that love. 3) By intensifying this devotion, all love will be born out of the crusade I request, because a creature not united by love to his God cannot do much. 4) If I ask for this special devotion to My Heart, it is because all the heartbeats that give life, not only eternally to My body but rather as the principal organ of the mystical life of My Church, depart from this organ of My Body. The sap that vitalizes all its members is in it. And this sap, that is the Divine Love, is not only Mine, but of all the creatures that were given to Me by the Father for their sanctification. 5) The devotion to My Heart does not mean that My Heart is going to be isolated from Me. It is going to be honored in Me without any separation, for the Love in My Heart is going to work in My deeds. It is going to work in My steps, action, and life: the goodness of mercy, justice, forgiveness, and kindness towards all creatures that have been given to Me, be they near or far. 6) This Heart cannot be separated from Me because I am Love, as man and as God. The devotion to My Heart and to My Mother’s heart must be that: love. 7) The souls joined and attracted by love feel identified, feel tied to one another. They feel ready to share pains and joys, to sacrifice themselves, and to be immolated for the beloved being. That is what My Heart asks of His creatures, because if they felt a love like that towards Me, I would establish My Kingdom in the world. 8) That is why I desire that there be more selfsacrificing souls in the world who know, with their surrender, how to console My Heart from the ingratitude of so many souls consecrated to My service, souls who nevertheless reserve their affections for worldly things. 9) To love and to make amends are two things completely joined. I loved man and made amends for
42 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

him! 10) So in loving My Heart, man makes amends for the offenses made to It. He sacrifices himself and, with his sacrifices and immolation, obtains mercy and forgiveness for the souls who offended My Heart. That saving soul saves other souls with his love. 11) Souls inflamed in My Love will also in turn soon know how to inflame, immolate themselves, and continue amending until obtaining My Heart’s Kingdom in men’s hearts. That is the crusade I ask for through atonement and penance: a crusade of Divine Love that may be able to contain the Divine Justice with its sacrifices and immolation. 12) I hope this devotion will light up all souls. I want it to be diffused by all priests and missionaries because it is called to be the salvation of the world. 13) The Missionary Devotion, because of its extension, should reach all men and towns…

18-Jan-96

Jesus

I have the right to ask everyone if you still need a stimulus to cover yourselves with Me. I have the right because I have struggled a lot to make you comprehend love, My Love. But I do not exert this right since I am capable of making you consent to My call without resorting to the command. It pleases Me to wait for you to spontaneously give Me your souls because it is better to receive spontaneously than by command or any other consideration. 2) Because of that I am calling your souls without any imposition and if you imitate Me by longing for Me, you will always have more and more abundant fruit because he who imitates Me attracts My strength unto himself and to the being who should be attracted. 3) I look for no better refuge than to be in the heart of man as a lover and never as one feared except in cases of necessity or hardness. I am free; you are free in Me and that freedom signifies so much that it surpasses the common concept. Be perfect like My Father, I have asked and I always ask for more. It is true, My Father has an incomparable perfection, yet it can be reached by imitating His goodness that calmly and freely wants to benefit. 4) No obligation but freedom…

MY BEST REFUGE IS MAN’S HEART CL-88
18-Jan-96 Jesus

1) Next to Satan’s cave there is a crowd of souls that has difficulty in taking a definite step to enter the kingdom of hate forever. The difficulty they have is not really because the doorway is narrow, rather it is very wide. I am the one who blocks the entrance to prevent the eternal condemnation of so many of My creatures whom I love as I love Myself. If they have the liberty of proceeding in the race towards the entrance to condemnation, I have the power to dissuade their inclination to evil and make them less harmful to themselves. An ocean of souls presses together in front of that accursed door over which is written: eternal death! The demon calls, seduces, and drags. I shine and attract the misdirected souls, the candidates for condemnation. 2) Remember that no cross is glorious and that all of them wound in such a way that the spirit particularly, remains offended. I desire it. I desire it and do not trouble yourself because peace is My ultimate proof, and in losing peace you could offend Me more than before. 3) Always implore Me, do not tire. I am looking to see if you are ready for My Desire.

Mary

My daughter, much beloved, today I want your prayers for the conversion of the former USSR… Yes, you heard correctly, for the former USSR. 2) The conversion of that territory is not certain, nor is it true that Communism has died. It is a frightening dragon that pretends to be asleep. But soon it will act and make apparent the diabolical work of the friend of the occult. 3) Please, offer one Rosary per week for the former Soviet Union.

Me from a distance. All those whom I have saved form a magnificent crown with which I encircle Myself, so that while I make a crown out of the blessed ones, they make a crown for My Paradise. Paradise, you say with joy, but not even the shade of Paradise approaches earth, for it is so far from you! 4) So many surprises await the soul upon arriving at My Kingdom where all the scaffolding of time falls because he enters into the eternal and beatific union between Me and the same soul. 5) I talk to you about banquets, thrones, and splendid vestments: I do it in order to adapt Myself to you because if I had to speak the truth to you, I would have to tell you that I and only I am Paradise. But you, what would you understand? When would you comprehend? Very little and in a very misshapen way. 6) He who loves Me and loves Me a lot, begins to see as if in a fog, what Paradise is. He finds that the key to all My comparisons with which I explain eternal Glory is only one and that he already possess it because I gave it to him. Whoever knows Divine Love understands in a veiled way what I am saying now. 7) So, it turns out that you speak of Paradise as love grows in you and the more love you have, the better you speak. When you get here you will find everything and you will find it precisely in Me, because I am your Paradise and not the things you imagined. Oh, human tongue, how improper of you to speak of Me! Oh, human thought, how small you are to be able to contend the infinite! Blinded man, how big is your presumption if you pretend to solve by yourself the problem of your future glory! Love, love, I tell you, and then you will know! If you do not love, you will not be able to know what I prepare for you.

18-Jan-96

Jesus

I have promised Celestial Glory to all, who denying themselves for My Love, arrive at the door through which one enters salvation. 2) What is Glory? The true Glory is the life of My being, and sharing that Life is to have the Glory of Heaven. I am glorious in Me, and you become glorious if you submerge yourselves in Me. 3) No one in Heaven can be in a corner, so as to see

I value in you the union to My sufferings more than any other of your works. Because apart from all of the beauty you acquire upon uniting yourself to My merits, you must consider that the unity produced because of love is very effective proof that the same merits with which you adorn yourself have produced the main fruit that I wished for: My Love in you. 2) It will be best for Me to show you how you must behave when I unite you noticeably to My sorrows and above all, explain to you which are your sorrows that unite you to My sorrows. 3) You try to make a distinction between normal sorrows and above normal sorrows. You make two MESSAGES 43

categories: your sorrows and My sorrows; common things and extraordinary things. You are wrong in thinking like that. 4) I became man precisely because you and everyone had to see that I, like you, wanted to experience the common sorrows as well as My personal ones. Remember My trembling upon passing the funeral procession of Naim; remember Lazarus already buried; reflect on the crowd that followed Me to the mount and had nothing to eat; reflect on the apostles' condescension about their material needs. Reflect, especially, how I took great pains to give My Mother a son that would take My place, even if materially, since I was leaving Her alone in the world. It is true that in each of these actions I based Myself on affirming high concepts, Divine truths, supernatural power, and My ultimate mission; yet the truth remains that I acted as man before I acted like God, as Redeemer. 5) In Cana I told My Mother that My hour had not yet come; nevertheless, sympathizing with the need for the banquet to have the desired ending, I complied with something that was not very necessary, but I did it because of the pity I experienced in seeing the urgency of the husband's family. 6) So then, in My behavior I nourished those feelings and therefore those sorrows that all honest men experience facing pain and needs, and I did it on purpose, to make known to you, in full evidence, My real being of a man like you. 7) Consequently, you too should act this way and unite them to Me as I was united to you. One does not think too much of this; one believes more in extraordinary things, and forgets the ordinary. On the other hand, he who does not allow the ordinary things to pass inadvertently will become worthy of the extraordinary and not vice versa. 8) And I am here, with My sorrows in you, My sorrow which are an actual participation of pains suffered by Me, and resulting spiritual anguishes for human Redemption. What you call memory is not a human thing but rather like an engraving that I have previously placed in your mind. To reflect and to act in the plain of My sorrows is not a natural thing for it adapts to your humanity only as a result of My Desire. But besides memory, you will experience sudden sorrows, due to occasional deeds, and these are not human deeds but things truly divine. And then if, without making use of anything, I work directly in you, do not entertain any doubts because it is clearly My Will in union with My sorrows. 9) Thus it is left clear as much as it concerns suffering for Me, be it now in the natural state or in the supernatural. For that reason, do not leave out any44 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

thing of what I offer you, because everything is desired by Me. Do not affirm yourself in the creatures, because the Creator moves them. Do not linger over human things, yours or somebody else's, because you receive them all to give you greater union. 10) This is the school of suffering and in this school you progress. Learn from Me, from your Teacher who allows you each time to better experience how much He loves you… 11) Please, My children, accelerate on the second book, you are not putting in it the necessary interest to spread it quickly. Will I have to forget about your urgent concerns?

YOU SHOULD IMITATE PETER CL-92
1)

18-Jan-96

Jesus

Peter fell miserably in the trap of human respect and he suffered the consequences of his sin throughout his life. But when he repented, his soul was much more resplendent than before, and no one can say that My beloved Peter was inferior to others in the strength of the pain for the sin committed. I want to talk to you about why I allowed his fall. 2) Peter represents in life what the creature is and can be. Individually, each one of you can do what he was able to do when he denied Me three times committing perjury and resorting to curses to show that his words were true, those which were indeed lies. 3) By My virtue, the creature can become greater than an angel, because I can make of it another Me and this is what I did with My good Peter. Furthermore, he who denied Me in that manner received such virtue from Me that, afterwards, he worked the wonders of charity and of My power. 4) In fact, he spoke languages he did not know and that, suddenly, he interpreted with the fluency of his native tongue. Like all My apostles, he freed the possessed and cured a multitude of ill persons by just touching them. Do you see what the creature can do because of My virtue? He can do everything. On the other hand, because of his own weakness he can look at the sun and swear that it is black; exactly like Peter did on the night I was taken prisoner. 5) Therefore, reflect well on your condition and obtain the fruit of My Wisdom recognizing your fragility, even more, your impotence… I do not want you to sin by brawling as did Peter when he cut off Malchus’ ear, but that your faith be loyal and ardent like that of the first apostle when he told Me: “Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. You are the Christ, the Son of God.” You should imitate Peter because My election has fallen over him, but not by accident: everything I do, always has

great importance. 6) From Heaven, Peter blesses all who meditate over his downfall and declares, together with Me, that it is more profitable to meditate on his weakness than about his mission as My Vicar. Indeed, if you really understand his sorrow, it will be much easier to accept all the prerogatives of My representative.

WAIT FOR MY PASSING AND FOLLOW ME CL-93
18-Jan-96 Jesus

1) If the creatures knew the plans I have for them, they would all be guided to the fulfillment of My Desire and nothing could distract them. But in the situation of him whom I called from high in a fig tree so that he could follow Me, one cannot know what I do, if the time I give them does not pass. 2) You must proceed like Zacchaeus, that is, rise over human things as soon as possible and wait for My passing in order to follow Me wherever I may go. I pass and you, follow Me; do not be impatient because I will certainly come by and you will certainly see Me if you observe Me from above. It could be that then I will tell you that I want to stop at your house, or else without saying anything, I will take you walking with Me. In both cases the choice is yours, and as for Me, I am interested in your accepting it solely because the good I want to give you depends on this. 3) Everything is in My Gospel, you check it continuously, but why is not Zacchaeus’ example also explained in the sense of what I have just said? Why does he call himself My disciple, he who does not appreciate the Gospel I have given men, if in fact, he does not follow Me much? He is not even interested in seeing the simple and sublime deeds that are related to Me and were lived by those around Me. He who does not worry about knowing Christ, cannot aspire to be called Christian. It is simple, nevertheless, some allow themselves to read without knowing how to choose the great readings, the most important one, the reading I am telling you about. 4) And now I tell you that if you hear Me, you will have the following benefits: the certainty in solving all the problems that are bothering you before the call to Heaven, and therefore lessening the pains of Purgatory; the strength as I desire to refuse sin; the light for you and for the rest, and finally, you will become participants of the particular dignity that I gave Mathew, John, and Mark... I promise to give you great things, but I do not mention them now; you will take notice of it as you remain captives of My Word.

Roses, thorns, happiness, and pains, My testimony is the one that has value. Why aggravate yourself in seeking My Will? May your interior moment be peaceful, not unsettled and, a lot less violent. 2) Judge without considering the consequences, but solely to encounter the present, the harmony with My Desire. 3) Indeed, who would want to put things in order in a half-empty suitcase if, when closed, it would be turned over many times? So does the one who predisposes everything toward a future forecast but without taking into account the present and, rather, doing so many things that are and will be the reason for which the desired future will not come. 4) You, man, put your affairs in order for that trip that you are taking to eternity. Yes, pack your suitcase, but do not seek to have a good trip without putting in your baggage other things you will need. Otherwise, during your trip what you had arranged well will fall to the floor and get disarranged within your spirit, making an ugly mess of the things that were in order. And, do you know what to put in your suitcase so that this does not happen? Put a small grain of trust and hope in Me; add two small grains of distrust in you and if you want to fittingly please Me entirely, look, I will give you what will fill your small baggage; without Me you will not be able to do anything. 5) And now, if you have done so, depart afar without more. I assure you that you will lack nothing and with boldness will arrive at your destination. 6) My beloved, this is the truth and each time I point it out clearer. I do not want you to remain passive. You must be very active, but with a lot of confidence in Me and without expecting much from you… 7) In everything, always remember that you will never be able to do anything without Me… Your happiness, what you now experience as you hear Me say that in all cases you have need of Me, is the proof I give as a security of your ascents. If man is proud, he degrades himself, becoming aware of his impotence and falling lower. On the other hand, if he is humble according to My Heart, he takes pleasure in not being good for anything. And I will make him capable of everything, and everyone will see that such a small being, that is not good for anything, can say prodigious things. 8) Forward, always united to My Desire that is a source of infinite good.

18-Jan-96 Jesus

More than sad, you should see Me afflicted because of the great abundance of sins that everyone weighs on the only Man who could bear them. 2) Your miseries were eased by My pitiful anguish and, what caused you solace was an indescribable burden for Me. Then, why do you moan if you experience the burdens that I carried and still continue carrying? Do you not want to be like Me exactly like you have believed necessary for My honor? And here I am, for this reason, I offer you the means to accomplish your wish, but they are despicable means that you must transform into pearls of much merit to adorn you in My honor. Consider that this is reality, not the one that shows itself off in men and perhaps in you. If it were not like this, why would I be insisting on this point? Take, take your Cross, you should also be a “Nazarene” and it does not matter that I want to make you small or big, what matters is for you to please Me. 3) Act with this persuasion and renew your ties to Me, because outside of this there is no tranquility, just as outside of My Desire there is no peace, which consists precisely in the agreement between your will and Mine. 4) Yes, blessed be the peaceful ones who have good will; they are in full possession of themselves and will truly be custodians of their souls, inasmuch as they have in their hands the key that opens and closes their desire. 5) Being united to Me in full acceptance of the adversities is valued so little! One considers it more convenient to remedy adverse things using your human experiences or other reasons, all dictated by self-esteem instead of having recourse to My commands that I have dictated, justly for those things that concern you and not for imaginary or hypothetical adversities that are not present. 6) I have spoken for the future, but in a present sense and My invitation is present for you in all occasions. As for the test, I do not ask for the impossible nor your ruin, but only for you to embrace as tightly as possible the cross I give you. 7) As for Me, I repeat, the example I left you was so great, not for you to think that you have to do as much, but to bring the evidence to your attention and induce you to follow My steps. Yes, you must be crucified but without making it evident as long as possible. Later I will see about showing evidence of your cross.

To lay the foundation of My Church, I took fishermen who could understand what a modern peasant can, and no more. Next, I wanted to select from among the learned men who had become wiser than what they were, not with vast studying, but with My doctrine. The beloved Paul was a scholar in the Jewish doctrine, and he became a luminous beacon for the one I had preached. 2) Through the passing of the centuries, scholars and illiterates followed, until today when almost all My priests are learned; but they do not find My wisdom so pleasing so as to place human wisdom on a second level. 3) Some, rather, dedicate their lives only to the explanation of a teaching that fails in the light of forever-new conquests. From My doctrine they take enough flour only to plaster their face and hands… 4) If Francis was so simple that he abhorred all nonecclesiastical study, My present day followers think of things that are usually human and become confused saying that human science is useful and even more necessary for the priest. But, where have they buried the precious pearl of the priesthood, of My doctrine? Perhaps it is a doctrine that must limit itself to certain exterior things without entering the profoundness of the conscience and human acts. 5) That is why I am here, to warn you. You give Me your intelligence entirely or you cannot pretend to convert the world with the rivers of human science. You, who have raised human professorships dressed only in human science, be aware of this. Try to remove that obstacle which impedes you from grasping the meaning of My simple yet profound words. Study them! Present the fruits to the deeply disturbed world; the fruits that I know to give to whomever studies My wisdom, and they will have the power to move the rest in search of Me. 6) So many doctorates on earth, but so many failures in Heaven! Think it over and do not be deceived: he who thirsts, come to Me and drink…

want to be conquered by Me. I have drawn My plan and I will unerringly put it to work. 2) Am I weak when I allow that they offend Me? Am I impotent to react against man’s insolence? And, who would ever breathe without Me stirring their lungs? It does not please Me to be tough with man, My favorite creature, because My strength would destroy him and My love not reciprocated, this love that moves Me to wait for the favorable hour, better still, to prepare the favorable hour of conversion. 3) That is why the good suffer now, while the bad continue to be dazed by their pleasures. No, I will not delay in giving the former the proof of My affection; they will wait no longer because I am about to return to you who love Me and I will return, no longer hidden, but obvious and glorious. The Virgin, My Mother, will be with Me, the true Queen of the Universe, that I have created with the vision of her next triumph. Yes, I will come, wait for Me but do not rack your brains wondering how I will manifest Myself; I do not let you catch a glimpse, so that when it happens, your happiness will be complete. And when you see Me, you will recognize Me immediately. 4) Be docile, everyone, to the warnings of My Vicar, whom I bound to My Cross a long time ago. He will tell you what you would want to know now and, without his confirmation, do not consider truthful or good anything that is apparently holy. Be in the arms of your Mother, in My Heart, in the will of our Divine Father; remain thus…

Jesus

What do I look for in a soul when I manifest Myself to it? For Me, nothing; but for the creature, I look for its well-being. To accept and then to refuse is the natural attitude of the human fickleness… If I would not strive to always turn on other lights, removing man’s resignation by degrees, this wrong would prevail. 2) Oh, say what you wish, but whoever truly wants My Desire, always remains supreme. Do not turn back but advance fearlessly and self-confidently towards your new goals. Higher, higher, always closer to Me, conquering each step with the always clear goal: to love. Do you want it? Do you want what I want precisely because I want it? Well then, this is enough for you and Me. I embrace you and I receive your embrace that is sweetened with My sweetness that I have put on you… Remain with Me…

It is more pleasing to prevail than to be subdued. But to prevail for one hour, one day, or even a whole lifetime is brief and not satisfying; better to prevail forever. 2) Did I prevail when I lived among you? 3) No, I submitted Myself and it pleased Me to do so for I thought it not prudent to be in a dominant position among men, and for that reason I wanted to let Myself be dominated. Do you remember the journey of My Passion? Do you see how I allowed everyone the misery of prevailing? 4) I was tranquil because later I would dominate. But I had greater motives for remaining calm, among which was the certainty of pleasing My Father, yielding to everyone My right to prevail. 5) What did it matter to be wronged, to be put behind a Barabbas, put among thieves? I loved and attended to this love, not to the men who mocked Me. Then they tried to not only humiliate Me, but brand Me with a mark of disgrace: the Cross. The Cross was justified because I had a great thirst for submitting Myself. 6) This is the external example. As for the internal, you know how I submitted Myself not only for mankind of that time but of all time. As a matter of fact, all of their sins were emptied upon Me and placed against Me, to the extent that I appeared to be God’s sole offender. 7) It is true that with miracles, the Doctrine, and the entirety of My life, an effective mastery (in the human sense) was given over My contemporaries. But this was not only to confirm My mission, but also for the Divine interior life that My Humanity possessed. 8) Can man imitate Me? 9) Yes, he can with certain ease if he is firm without paying attention to who is asking or who is yielding. This is the submission I talk about. It is the way that makes one see the meekness and humility of the heart; this is the hope that I have had for you so that by submitting, you will resemble Me. 10) No, do not pay attention to the man, do not notice who he is, because today he is and tomorrow I will renew him. Pay attention, on the other hand, to what pleases Me and to what remains in you when you sincerely humble yourselves for My Love. Humility is great wisdom! Meekness is great wisdom! Great wisdom is My plan with which I give you the opportunity to please Me! 11) The good little sheep has stopped bleating beMESSAGES 47

cause it finds its nourishment and fullness in the grass that was offered to it. According to the promise, it has received love and only with the fulfillment of its duties, it has found what it desired. A community life, of course, but lived singularly; a nobody in the world, but very distinct in Heaven. 12) Tell My other little sheep that bleat yet continue being idle, that forgetting My commandment is like trading the currency I have given. He who buries My money will not have approval; he who stands without striving, will not receive help. However, he who moves and comes towards Me, the best shepherd, will graze in My Divine pastures. 13) But here the Shepherd climbs a steep mountain, where the grass is sparse, but has the best taste of all the pastures. Brave little sheep, like what you find behind his footprints: the one who guides you is good and appreciates the effort of your tender little legs. And so, will you want to stop? Why? There is not enough grass here and if you look up, vertigo will set in. No, go up; up there you will find the best grass: climb with Me! Sink your feet in the rocky terrain; continue steady, if a rock rolls down; you must not tumble, look farther up. 14) I do so much for you that finally I have opened your eyes. I make you a teacher, a medical doctor, a shepherd. I push you, carry you, make you fly, warm you, disentangle you, make you burn. What do I not do for you? 15) Find one more thing that you still want from Me and I will immediately give it to you. 16) If you work, you are plunged into many small things; well then, not even then do I leave you in peace, because at times I send you the enemy of all time: Satan, who bellows. 17) Why are you surprised if I make you shout “love, love, love” from the rooftops? Why do you withdraw upon hearing My explanation of the mystery that surrounds you? You almost fear My word because I speak of you. But say it, can you deny that I love you? Can you deny My works in you? Perhaps, you fear that you will become to be what you are not? Yet not the words but the works will say that Heaven is pleased with you. Not these lines but My future witnessing will tell about the love with which I have connected you. 18) Do you want to know why I have spoken to you so? 19) Because until now you have firmly considered what you have done against Me and because I, on the other hand, have to show that even a pile of wretchedness as you are, is object of great concern on My part. And I say, the more obstinate man has been in pushing Me away, the more I delight in drawing 48 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

him to love. Furthermore, the more fragile the base, the more firmly do I start building. 20) Sins are repugnant, obstinacy is horrendous, but My Love can now sing with My most beloved Church and with you: Oh happy fault!

Jesus

My ever-Merciful Heart, overflowing with generosity, wants to prevent humanity’s total and eternal ruin. To save her, it was sacrificed on the Cross. 2) If in part this sacrifice will be ineffectual for the world that denies Me and crucifies Me, may those I call Mine not be the ones who place obstacles before Me nor silence the sound of My voice in the message that My Heart sends to the world, to man’s heart, so that he may know that My coming, and with it My salvation, is near. 3) If I speak, silence the distrustful tongues and listen so that the mind can absorb the Spirit I send. Apply your hearts to My teaching, for if man hardens his understanding to My warnings, he will be shattered when he least expects it. When the impious multiply, their crime will also multiply implicating humanity in the just and deserved punishment. 4) My voice should be heeded, because he who gives an answer without listening, deserves to be confused and in need. 5) My Church, guide and support of My faithful people, will be exalted in them because they never distanced themselves from Me. With My Cross shining upon it, My justification will be like a torch that will not go out and whose fire will burn up the whole earth.

You who suffer, wait hopefully, for the hour of liberation is arriving. 4) I have said peace and well-being from She who guides me and to whom is owed the splendor of my Christ, as Mother of He made Man. Let no one dare

to bother the saving work of She who shines over all the stormy seas. I follow Her, and precede Her only to smooth the way. 5) In Heaven Her name is very sweet, on earth it is a beacon, in Hell a dart that breaks up the gloom of the darkness. 6) Turn your mind up high, down under the rage will cease.

the first brilliance of creation came forth a man who would be in the created world, My representative and that of all creatures. I put him between Heaven and earth, in a situation as dominator and worshipper: dominator of the earth and worshipper of the Divinity. 2) Adam, first and alone, did not understand anything but the little that was advisable at the beginning of this work of Mine, all-willing to respect the freedom and the smallness of the humanity created. But I came to achieve perfection and I indicated the road that should be traveled to reach the improvement for which I Myself gave the inspiration. 3) Even now, after so many centuries of work I do not pause in favor of the creature, and I act to lead, as though by the hand, all humanity towards always new goals. Many dreams are undone in the mind, because I oppose the purposes that are not in conformity to My Desire. I allow other dreams, that are harmless, to remain firm in the minds of some, and I am willing to give help to those who really carry in themselves the germs of the future progress of humanity. 4) He who judges with haste does not know which are the signs that show the certainty of My help. Therefore, he deprives himself of entering in the design that I am consolidating more each time, of giving to the world, to the chosen man, a greater good, a vital and beneficial activity in the bosom of My Desire. 5) How insolent are the shouts of men who contradict Me! Be calm, peaceful; do not be upset, My creatures, because you are mistaken and in great error. 6) And you who nap while rocking yourselves in the swing of the benefits that go by, what conclusion do you draw? Why do you grow sleepy thinking that the best thing to do is not to meddle with whoever contradicts Me or listens to Me? You cannot be tranquil like this, because there is someone who requires immediate action and I am justly the one who does it. Get off the swing and train yourselves in righteousness, doing useful things for yourselves and for

others who intercede for you. Wake up; it is time! 7) But to those who do not oppose Me, I must direct another reasoning. The acceptance you offer Me is fine, but something else is lacking. You must know that you are instruments of righteousness, you must take to others a word of innovation that does not cause harm, but much good. That is, you lack the persuasion that I am the one who moves you, notwithstanding your imperfections. Better still, I delight in transforming you, precisely so that you will serve as examples to everyone. 8) Today you feel lonely, but you are many and soon I will gather you to form a granite block against which all error will shatter. Soon you will have the new leader who will guide your army and dispel all adverse fickleness. Towards this end I have put Michael on earth; but he is not alone, because I have sent other Archangels to defend you and give you assistance with their advice and power. And, when everything is ready, from on high will come down this sentence: victory to men of good will.

THE DISTANCE BETWEEN YOUR WAY AND MINE IS VAST CL-103
19-Jan-96 Jesus

1) I make the creature look out to the thresholds of the unknown world that dominates them, in order to comprehend some secret and allow him to take it to the earth like an intense treasure. What pity for those who do not want to understand My work! What blindness that prevents knowing what most interests the soul who lives solitary on earth! 2) Yet, why do I allure this soul? Because I manifest Myself in it? May the creature comprehend and take hold of Me: I want her effort and will reward it. She should tell Me: “My Creator, I have not understood well what you mean, yet you have made me understand that You love me. For that reason I trust in You; I accept, listen, and want because I see that You want.” Ah, if only they would tell Me this, those that waver would find so much good! 3) For this reason I speak to you of renouncing yourselves and I always insist on it. This is because I know and see that the reason why you do not listen to Me is always one: it is always the “I” full of self, not righteousness stripped of self. I repeat: the distance is vast between your way and Mine, between your reasons and Mine, the reasons why you do not believe I love you, that you will not succeed in filling the abyss that separates us. Nevertheless, I am with you every day, every hour, always, and you do not understand Me, you do not believe Me. I love you: remember it; think about it. It is not a fruitless thing. MESSAGES 49

My Love is not empty words telling you that I love you, but it is full of truths and promises. I love you and you also love Me. 4) He who loves Me will see the fullness of truth in these words that I pronounce to give you the nth testimony of Me, because I do not deceive. I consolidate all your trust, continuously increasing My gifts and making them so evident so as to make you touch the truth of My Love with your hand. Creatures, be docile, believe in Me, and continuously mistrust yourselves. Take My word for it; this way you will find Me.

MAN IS A TRUE IMAGE OF HIS CREATOR CL-104
1)

19-Jan-96

Jesus

In the maternal bosom are formed the bodies of creatures who will be rational if they belong to humanity… The plant lacks the instinct of the beast, the beast the reasoning of man; this one, on the other hand, possesses all the attributes of the three kingdoms for it forms a part of everything. Therefore, it is said that man is the king of creation. But if man degrades himself and comes down to the second kingdom, he becomes deformed, that is, he transforms the qualities that make him stand out, into inferior qualities and thus becomes monstrous and bestial. 2) Every kingdom has its sensibility. Man, who is situated as sovereign between the created heaven and earth that harbors him, has the capacity to reflect the perfection of the Creator of whom he is a true likeness. He reasons, loves, and, therefore, knows and wants… That is why man sees himself, reproduces himself, and loves himself. If he goes from the act of seeing himself to contemplating Me, then he could also speak of Me and, therefore, reproduce Me and love Me. 3) From nature to Grace, from Grace to Divinity, consequently, man touches the plant kingdom with his feet, the animal kingdom with his hands, and his Creator with his head and heart, that is, with his soul. 4) How much they flatter the animal kingdom; how they enjoy themselves in the plant kingdom! When man forgets who he is, he dulls his soul, made to My likeness, disfigures it, and degrades his nature. Seeing it that way, he sees it as truly monstrous because it is as if he put on his face a stripe of mud and put it inside a sack. On the other hand, when he responds to the law I have given him, he possess an unsurpassed beauty on earth. It is a little of God, surrounded by Light; it is a little love glowing with Love. 5) Oh you men, who are accustomed to forgetting 50 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

your nobility. If you do not feel capable of remaining at the summit that corresponds to the nature you have, take courage because the love I have for you is so much. I have made Myself Man like you because I respect My work, having raised you from nothingness. Does it not seem reason enough to not dirty the exalted nature that I have given you? 6) You are as flowers for the plant life I have given you; as the birds for the participation you have in the animal kingdom; and as the angels for the spirit I have instilled in you. Furthermore, you are like Me because of My wish to partake of your human nature. 7) Do you think these are not sufficient motives to consider yourselves to be placed up high? Is it not motive enough to know that the Creator wants you far off from the rest of Creation because you should be intimately united to Me? 8) But I know you have your objections. You say: “How can we always remain in one state if we are placed in all of the states of creation?” I have foreseen and I know the difficulties of the different types. 9) If I had not given you the remedy, you would have reason to complain, because without help no one can be supported. I have devised to put you in balance among the different kingdoms because in this way, and since I have no supports, you will be able to resemble Me more. But if I had not united you to Me by becoming man, the fall would have been inevitable. 10) And here is man, moving himself at the inclination of Divinity, king of creation, representative of the spirits and of the matter that demonstrates the noble and powerful strength he has had. He is here in union with Me, the first man, climbing the summits of Glory. 11) Creatures: what I tell you is great, but not more so than you are, because you can fix your gaze and hurl yourselves onto Me who awaits you affectionately. You are men, yes, all men, small if you want, yet you can become great by uniting yourselves intimately to Me who offers you the possibility of being, not only My image, but even like Myself. When you arrive at the height of My knowledge and are submerged in My love, you become one with Me for I made Myself one with you.

Through My Love help the abandoned children and, moreover, dispense My Light to so many sinners. 3) O, My Mother, thus I ask You, and You know why.

Blessed, sovereign, and glorious is My Name in Heaven and venerated on earth. Upon the echo of My name, all Hell flees, and he who willingly invokes Me finds what he loses, consoles himself in all affliction, and opens his heart to hope. 2) I have determined to give to whoever invokes Me with affection and faith, a special recompense in Heaven: as many times as he called Me on earth, many more times will he be praised by all the blessed in Heaven. What does he who calls Me absent-mindedly or by habit, want from Me if he does not even reflect on My name? My name does not give strength if you do not love Me; it cannot arouse sentiments of piety if it is not pronounced with the heart more than with the lips. Who knows the power that My name encloses, the name that My Father gave Me? Who knows the sweetness that this name revealed to My Virgin Mother holds? 3) It is now centuries that the world calls Me and always with little love. What litanies from inattentive persons come to My sensitive and attentive ears! But, why do they not understand Me? Why do they not understand that only I have the blessed, the glorious, and the mellifluous Name that is salvation and love? 4) Always call Me with confidence and without thinking if you have graces to ask of Me; the less you ask for, the more you will receive. Always call Me because I want to be close to you and give you My all. At all hours of the day or night, at work, everywhere, passionately call Me: Jesus!

I shall exalt the humble and lead him straight to the end of his weariness, without him knowing the qualities that he comes to acquire on the road to the perfect Light. 2) The humble please Me for they reproduce My lowliness, My humiliation, in themselves; the humble please Me because they are the mirror of truth and I consider their life like a precious story in which are written admirable and inspired things. He who strives with words in declaring his wretchedness is not true and humble. Sometimes this kind of humility receives the reward on earth, but in Heaven I shall reward much better that other humility which comes from the interior and firm persuasion of his nothingness and his faults. 3) The origin of humility is in the heart. The more it grows the greater the humility in the soul. Therefore, secure love and you will receive all that is related to the lovely and holy humility. 4) May your exercise be only one: to grow in love on which the rest of the virtues depend. And to grow in love, you already know your part. Indeed, I always give greater love to those who make an effort to contradict themselves. 5) Be happy, humility is not depression. Take joy in My Divine Love, without sadness but cheerful for your miserable condition that enjoys all My infinite richness…

19-Jan-96

Jesus

In the high regions, where human things are seen as a whole and in the completeness of the truth, live those who have perfect union of Will with Me and who anxiously desire from Me the total and sole manifestation. I refer to Heaven, where love reigns unquestionably and where joy is permanent. In comparison with the reign of joy, is the reign in which hate and fury inflames those who voluntarily repudiate Me. 2) In Heaven, one is the Will that leads and satisfies all the blessed spirits, those that for free and pure love want solely what is pleasing to Me. This is because all their desire lies precisely in Mine: no divergence, but on the contrary, perfect and peaceful harmony of desires. 3) They are familiar with what I want for I manifest it to them, and they are free but ardently dedicated to
MESSAGES 51

the fulfillment of what pleases Me. 4) Since I am the love that they love, I am He in whom they have dissolved their abilities and themselves entirely. Therefore, it cannot be said that there are many wills, although concurrent, but only one Will because Love is one. 5) On the other hand, in Hell there is no happiness but hate; no union but complete disagreement. They are in total darkness and are there because of selfesteem, a love that makes them hate Me and everyone. 6) For that reason violence is supreme in hell… Now think about these things and reflect that you could be like the blessed ones, or else, like the condemned. In order to be blessed it is necessary to walk through the road of submission; in order to be condemned one has to go through the road of absolute independence, that is to say of rebellion. Happy is he who leaves himself to contemplate Me until becoming one with Me. Condemned is the one who, remaining in himself, becomes arrogant in such a way that he turns monstrous because of his egoism. 7) Direct the mind to these things and may nothing be sweeter to know than the fact that I prepare you with a thousand pressures to allure you to Me and to give you the free love that reigns in Heaven…

wait, oh impatient and intolerant man. I have told you that this is the source, yet I have not promised you that your thirst would suddenly cease. You must get to My source to find the essence you seek. Unfortunately, we shall always get to the same thing; that is why I again invite him and allow the thirsty man to make sure about everything.

I AM THE SOURCE OF THE ESSENCE YOU SEEK CL-109
20-Jan-96 Jesus

1) Man seeks the essence of things and he would want it singly without the mixture of other things that make it less comprehensible. Therefore, I adjust Myself and try to take away from man that which hinders him in his search for the essence of things. But, what happens? Man, upon feeling grief because I am evaporating the liquid that goes with the essence, is bothered and shouts as if I had not accepted his petition. 2) How can I make him find what he seeks if I do not set on fire that which prevents him from knowing exactly what he seeks, that is to say, the truth? 3) Place some wine on a burner and bring it to a boil until reducing it to a little of the liquid and you will have the essence of the wine. You can only see and perceive the essence of the wine that has gotten to the boiling point, before diminishing. 4) Now look how fragile man’s memory is and how fickle his purpose. When I invite him to the spring where he will satisfy his thirst, he runs, flies towards Me. On the other hand, when I take his thirst away by showing him the truth, he snorts because he does not get to savor immediately the freshness of the water. 52 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

1) Think, My daughter, if at times passivity is not harmful, especially if it deals with someone who has responsibilities. 2) Who tells you that you must act passively when you are certain that it is harmful to those I have entrusted to you? It is a difficult doorway to cross, I do not deny it, but you can do it very well since I want it and I help you more each time. 3) You who would like to rush to Me without any obstacles, think about to which and to how many obstacles I have given free reign. I submitted to all trials, all discomforts, when I became man made like you. How many were the ones who heard Me? A few. How many were the ones who opposed Me? Count them if you can. And, how did My life end, in the triumph of a few or in the treachery of many? And for that, perhaps I have failed? For this, I have come back? 4) So it is, My beloved flower, that is the way it must be. Learn from Me and you will have true rest in your soul that thirsts for Me and opposed by those who do not know what they do. I absolutely want you to be like Me, as for the rest, you must not worry. 5) Go peacefully through the paths of My Love and produce cautiously but with security, the works that unite with Me. 6) Always be wise in loving, for love is the greatest wisdom. I do not abandon you, and you trust in Me because I am with you. I am yours; be Mine. You and I shall be one!

Originating with the little plant and cultivated by it, the poison becomes a medicine and continues living condensed. But like the medicine which has a little bit of poison is capable of treating an illness, thus My miseries, the ones that poisoned My spirit, grant health to whoever receives them and even to others.

remote comparison of an idea of the bitter vitality contained in certain plants, the vitality that continues once put on and transfused into a sick body to which, if applied properly, gives it health. Therefore, what was a great danger turns out to be a healthy remedy. 3) I am the embittered plant; I live off My own life and in Me I have found the perfect equilibrium between the miseries received and the sweetness possessed. I have lived so fully that even in pain I was completely satisfied. 4) But wherever My disposition is taken, I have renewed My vitality and, therefore, My sorrowful life of Passion. I have transplanted Myself to you and in you together with My miseries and sweetness. And so you can enjoy the fruit of their benefits and appreciate Me as I am. 5) It does not matter what one gives the sick as long as it is for their health. What matters is to get well. I heal you and so much the better the more that you assimilate My qualities. But the sick cannot remain inactive, receiving the medicine; they should in some way contribute to their health. Therefore, I leave you inactive and want you to offer Me your intention of allowing yourself to be healed by Me, doctor and medicine. I heal you; you should be cured. 6) Nevertheless, some should have the property of curing others, as if they were to take My place in curing, implored or not. These are they who perform hidden miracles with medicine, and the ones I select as My direct collaborators. To do this they must have My properties, that is, the properties of the plant that contains within itself the bitterness that cures; the substance called poison. Yet it is only My infused virtue and given for the well-being of man to whom it only seems to be poison. 7) My bitterness, therefore, must be received in all the ones I have selected whom one day I shall point out as the favored ones because of that same bitterness. 8) And if the figurative sense is not pleasing to you, as if what I say were not true, then I shall tell you: How can all of you say that you love Me if you do not make yours My sorrows, My concerns which were for Me a heartbreaking, interior bitterness? How can you say you love Me if you are not united in certain situations of pain that I work in you for your benefit? And, how can I believe that you love Me if My cry, thirsty for you, has no effect on you? 9) Whoever loves Me considers these things. Oh, he must not think of himself, do not do it; above all he must be concerned about Me; he must direct his mind and soul to My Passion. Then through My Divine inspiration, he will know what it means to be

united to Me in the solitude of the inattentive, tremendously ungrateful, and unloving hearts. I thirst, I say it even today: I thirst! No one will be able to obliterate My thirst from their souls. If only you could experience it for a single moment! I tell you that even My priests who condemn themselves have not forgotten this thirst of Mine, because of them what was once a cause of Divine Love, is now a cause of great rage. Therefore, not even they can forget. And, how will My blessed ones forget it, if their thirst was cause for comfort for Me whom they love intensely? For them it is the eternal joy that does not pass, the sweetest happiness that gladdens their eternal stay. 10) My beloved, through My words advise others, as soon as you can, that the thirst of which I speak produces the bitterness to which I referred before. It produces because: where are those that have given relief to My great desire to give souls refuge? Where are they, if all sinners have hurled themselves like crazy into their ungodliness to the point of not having the heart to even call My name? 11) Here is what I wanted to tell you, My beloved souls, for your good and for the good of all. You all will be able to easily see that I am the one who begs for love; I who makes Myself your victim, and I who humbles Myself and who implores you to be My cups which I can fill to overflowing. I do it without any concern for Myself, but only for your interest. 12) Hear Me, at least you hear Me, now that you are placed like a fertile seed between the thorns of men. Let nothing be more precious than knowing My intentions towards you. Abandon your doubts, come to Me full of confidence, to Me who can and wants to make you like Me.

WHY BOTHER TO BELIEVE… IF ONE DOES NOT LOVE? CL-112

Jesus

I shall be crucified in My disciples each time that they withstand hardships of reputation, or else, clear offenses to their sincere love. These are exactly the two items that make them like Me, because the act of the Sanhedrim against Me was precisely to deprive Me of reputation, crucifying Me like a common thief on the Cross for everyone to see. I, who am the greatest honor bestowed on the Jewish nation, received this outrage from these same people. And, I also suffered grief from the many who offended My sincere love, first believing in it and then rejecting it. 2) That is why I tell all of you that I am again crucified in My beloved for they, with their acceptance, renew My pains. MESSAGES 53

It is better for Me to tell you these things clearly because they are obstacles such that, while they can bring you much good, they could make you stop and go backwards. But, for whom would you go back? For blind people, like you who want to nail them on a cross of ignominy, or else, betray the sincere love with which you benefit. 4) It is necessary for you to know these things and you must consider yourselves prepared to receive them because, why bother to believe if one does not love? Just to believe is not enough; one truly needs to love, because salvation rests in love. All good, be it yours or Mine, resides in love. 5) You are My disciples, chosen cups in which I pour an abundance of celestial gifts. Receive them, for you will give Me great satisfaction. You are not being dragged through the road of My Love; I leave you always free, and freely you must accept all I have told you. But, be attentive, everything falls apart if you become stagnant, anything you can do considering the insults coming from the side of human justice. My charity, that is My affection for you, is above man’s justice and does not tend to it. You should do and think the same. Oh, My chosen ones, whom these words will reach, do not weaken your efforts. Beg Me for this and I shall grant it. 6) If you experience these things in your mortal life, consider yourselves privileged, because this is exactly the way it is in Heaven where everything is seen in My Divine Light. You are privileged when you are given the opportunity to suffer, privileged as I was when I suffered for you. 7) Give Me your assent modestly, but firmly. For many centuries I have been asking for this. Do not delay anymore. 8) If the whole world could count the many beautiful graces that form the base of My diverse manifestations, a music of praises and of love for Me would be heard and everyone would be consoled by themselves and by the rest. But in the world, the law of darkness rules and the creatures do not know how to speak of the beauty of My outpouring towards them. That is why a great part of My work will be known only in Heaven, after salvation has been concluded. 9) From time to time I go outside of the ordinary to give you the idea that your situation is not crystallized in darkness, rather, it is developed in pursuit of certain goals unknown to you. 10) How I value faith and I partially reward it on earth. Today’s conflicts are the momentous events of tomorrow, because to really follow Me means not to put easy things as a basis of your own existence but the conflicts I get Myself and with the world that surrounds you. I shall keep in mind
3)

precisely those conflicts, because I work in a very different way than the creature who tries to forget what is difficult and makes himself comfortable in what is easy. But in the end, everything that you have fled from will remain. That is: the feared Cross. That Cross, endured with pain and, in any event, received with feelings of conflict, will be the only thing that will remain to give testimony of you. Therefore, although not logical, the rule directly stated is: each one is worth as much as he knows how to suffer. 11) Look at Me, study Me in the suffering, because it is a great good to know Me in the Divine Passion that burned in My soul. To know is worth much for being able to respect and love. Understand Me, you who are the preferred of My sorrowful Love. Value Me, you who have received My Divine effusions. Only with the understanding and appraisal of all that you have received from Us, will you have the possibility of imitating Me.

Jesus

The influence of My Divine Intercession expels even the greatest darkness that can reign in a soul, and no matter how miserable it may be, there has been no one not susceptible to improvement. I state this to confirm it to those who do not comprehend Divine Love. 2) When Peter was severely judged for the matter of the idols, who benefited from it, the judges or the court? Only Paul used charity to judge him, because he did it for My Love; all the rest remained as miserable or more than before… But Peter judged that he was acting well and I did not reproach him because of Paul. This would have displeased Me because I simply did not want the first Pontiff to be deprived of the freedom of action and, therefore, be influenced by the weakness of others and that he not become an instrument, even if it is involuntary, of scandal or division because of a purely formal matter. 3) Likewise it happens that, when I want to give a degree of higher perfection to one of My chosen ones, I make sure that his actions are reprimanded so that, submitting himself to one who is less than he, he may receive the righteousness that is contained in admitting his weakness, or else his weak point. But you think that My Will to humble My chosen ones is closely tied to certain periods of the spiritual life and is never granted at the beginning of the same life. 4) The truth is always one, but man knows it gradually because certain heights cause dizziness to whoever is not used to them.

THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

want to call something to your attention: why do you waste time making little paper ships that sink? 6) Rather, build solid ships that withstand the stormy waves. The paper ships, My daughter, they are the events that you must not worry about at all, because this or that thing is very different for someone else. Do not remain with whoever takes away your peace; do not contribute to the war on earth. 7) Oh, My beloved ones, how this burning Heart loves you! Your glory is to receive abuse, unfairness, and scorns, mainly from those who should love you. So many notices, so many warnings! My daughter, when we are not able to form, to teach the humility of the heart, we wait… Wait for things to be discovered; there is no better ally than time. For them there is no worst enemy than time. Do not insist; fill yourselves with peace… 8) In the railways, the rail is the salvation of those who put their trust in the operator of the train. The meaning of what I want to tell you today is enclosed in these simple words. 9) The train represents men of good will; I am the operator; the rails are the doctrine of the Church and the submission to its ministers. 10) He, who is in position, travels happy and safely towards the goal. Of what good is it to believe in Me without having good will? And what fruit will good will yield if it is not well guided by the infallible doctrine whose deposit is in the hands of Peter’s successors? And finally, how would knowing all these things help without being submitted to My ministers who take My place? 11) Reflect upon this, because many times the lack of reflection leads to incalculable consequences. 12) Do you believe I am the operator of the train? All right, then let yourself be truly guided, not by word of mouth, but with concrete facts; not with the aid of sentimental impressions, but with that made of living faith, sensed hope, and holy charity. Otherwise, how can you say that you acknowledge Me as your superior, your reformer, and, above all as your true love? This is why, it is necessary to believe, hope, and love in a substantial manner. 13) Do you believe that I have gave in your interest the two rails that I have told you which concern the teaching of the Church and the guidance of My ministers? All right, but be consistent because not only must you believe it but it is necessary to be governed daily by that faith. And then, study what the Church says; follow the advice of My ministers. 14) Thus the train that takes you to the divine life will be able to run swiftly and you will be able to experience how wise is the steady hand of the operator,

5) I

who is precisely Me. 15) It is necessary for Me to strengthen the love you have for this Church in which I have placed salvation and of which you have extracted nutritious nourishment. You must love her intensely, for no other motive not even for consideration for the salvation that you can find in her, because you know that she is beloved by Me. She is beloved by Me; for that reason, love her. 16) I have entrusted My Blood to her; I subject Myself to her as a very beloved wife; she possesses all My wealth because I have given it to her. Love her intensely because I made her for you too and I gave her authority and wisdom so that she can always take care of you in all ways, on all occasions. Whoever does not love her is not worthy of Me and he who loves her is like Me, for I love her infinitely. It is beautiful to write the Saint’s eulogy, but the eulogy of My Church, mother of all saints, belongs to Me and I will write it one day in view of the entire universe. I say it today because the battle against her bellows on the outside. 17) Who wants to find weapons to cause her death if the blows are giving her more vigor? How will they kill her if I warn them that all they plot will serve to make the beauty of My Wife better known? 18) Oh, she will not die on the Cross, she will not resurrect from the tomb, no miracles are performed without My Omnipotence. And if I had not resurrected, they would hope to also kill My Church… 19) Oh, rash illustrious ones on earth, how you would tremble today seeing what will become of you when, upon reaching the frustration of your hopes, I place you under the feet of My beloved Wife. 20) Everyone pray, pray for your persecutors. It is the hour of Hell; that to upset you, blasphemes My Name on earth; the Hell that studies through the human intelligence, the way of torturing My chosen ones. I have said that this is the hour. Away with the fears, My beloved. I have resurrected for you. Remember it and believe that nothing or anyone will deprive you of My effective victory. Besides, I give you [Catalina] another companion, Augustine, the burning one. Be happy for the present and the future…

The thoughtless persist and do not want to think that someone opposes them and trains them. How much longer should this audacity of ungrateful men with My benefits continue? If man clings on to those things that have been arranged for his salvation, how could he consider himself a pauper? 4) How pitiful is the human blindness by which the Divine Wisdom is hindered! And how can the souls I have created and redeemed, and wish to glorify, obtain peace without submitting to My warnings, to the care with which I surround them? How can they who offend Me this way declare themselves innocent? 5) Yet, not only do My enemies oppose Me, but also the ones I have called to follow Me. They too return bad for good and only I know what they would do if I did not intervene in other ways. 6) I would like to tell these ones that their situation is dangerous and untenable, because leaving them by themselves for one single moment could be forever fatal. Therefore, listen to Me, give up your concerns and be simple, not complex. 7) I assure you that in your minds darkness reigns; I warn you that you will have nothing of what you misleadingly expect from Me, because with your spiritual lethargy, you prevent Me from working on your behalf. Enough warnings, come to the facts and thrive in My Love. I do not want to do everything because I have made you capable of contributing to My work and you can give no better yield then the one that I unselfishly ask for. 8) Pay attention and do not forget your Teacher’s warning; always work in union with Me!

am seated on high and from there I move everyone to My plan, even the forgotten souls who have not received redemption, but who were not deliberately friends of Satan, the oppressor. 3) That is why they are not alone because they are with everyone I want. And how could they be alone, oh sightless men, if they are in Me? 4) You ask Me if I receive prayers from the souls in Purgatory. Yes, they always pray, but in a superhuman way, not divine, in the same manner Adam could pray to Me before falling into original sin. It is a prayer said by instinct, because they do not see what I want. I have them like you are used to having your young children who do not speak but know at the same time how to express themselves. Their prayer, therefore, is deprived of the union with Me because they do it for themselves, their movement is isolated but upright, and for that reason agreeable to Me. 5) That kingdom will also be a footstool for Me and it will be seen that they too, thinking of Me, are capable of finding their happiness.

Beloved daughter, see from the height of My wisdom how admirable everything is that I do in favor of men, and recognize My hand, which is accustomed to contributing to the life of all creatures, without excluding anyone. Because all concerned, whether they want to or not, not even the wicked nor the saints, nor the souls in Purgatory, remain unmovable to My work. 56 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

wandering souls are the ones that Satan seeks the most and leads to perdition, with the suspicion that God has abandoned them and, consequently, everything is permitted. 2) It is good that all of you to know that Satan has taken away many of those souls, and many others are about to go with him. But My enemy’s work is strongly hindered by Me, without whom the destruction would be total. And Satan’s work is so deceiving that it escapes even the most alert ones. He is a master in patiently destroying the good I do in men’s hearts and would be invincible if I did not stop him some. For the same reason, know that the invisible enemy also makes every effort to make you, My friends, slip up. Moreover, with all of you he uses cleverer tricks because he has to keep in mind the work of My Grace, which is on guard and constantly opposes the enemy of all good. 3) Do you want to walk safely through the waters of your unstable humanity? Listen to what I tell you: do not be afraid, because fear destroys faith while trust reinforces it. I knew well what My call implied and I have assessed beforehand all contingencies and possibilities. And if I have called you, it is true that you can defeat Satan’s astuteness, because I assist you at all times. 4) Therefore, be firm and you will have the honor of

victory. I do not tell you if you must defeat the enemy one, ten, or a thousand times; I only tell you: be alert and have confidence in Me. 5) Elected divine offspring, the life that you obtain in the battle is worth the pain fighting to conquer. The life I want to give you is the life of your souls throbbing with love. The objective, therefore, is clear: to fight for My Love, and to conquer through My Love.

Beauty and charity live fused in one single manifestation that adapts itself to the present needs and encourages according to the persons I choose for such manifestation. 2) The man who hears My words does not live secluded; he gradually walks toward the Light that I want to grant him at the completion of his worldly journey. But it is necessary that there be some delays, searches for the routes and, therefore, confusion, of which it would be entirely erroneous to deduce that the delay or confusion may be damaging to the journey. 3) I see your spiritual state that fears the delay and has doubts concerning the road that must still be covered. You are guided towards My manifestation, and provided it is total, you would make the great sacrifice of destroying your manuscripts. I do not want placed before Me even a particle of straw, and I want to be loved without any strain on your part. 4) Of course, you cannot imagine how much contentment you give Me with this, so much that, no sooner do you ask Me for My Kingdom on earth, you give those for whom you prayed the goodness that My Will wanted to give them. 5) It is My Life that burns in you and for Me to live, you have to die: this is your confusion and no other. I am with you.

PRAY FOR THE SOULS IN PURGATORY CL-118
21-Jan-96 Jesus

1) Write, My child; you are almost finished with your assignment… Joyous and glorious is the redeemed soul; it goes from the suffering in Purgatory to the delight of Paradise, surrounded by lights, full of Celestial gifts. 2) When one requests the redemption of the souls in Purgatory, all Heaven moves toward Me, and if it sees that I want to deliver some soul, it unites to the prayer that is made on earth to support and com-

plement that same prayer. And that support is necessary, because very frequently the motives that prompt mystical wanderers to ask Me for the redemption of the souls in Purgatory, are of a purely human or insufficiently supernatural order. 3) Therefore, while I receive petitions from earth, I also receive petitions from Heaven on behalf of the souls in Purgatory; but the blessed ones never ask without being heard, and this is the reason why they do not ask if they see that I do not want to grant the redemption. From there I may mark these souls that the favorable reception [to Heaven] is conditioned. For all of My Love in that one, now the prayer movement is generated, be it by you or My blessed ones. If you are moved to pray, it is because I want to give redemption and glory to some soul, but in the time and manner decreed by Me. 4) Who thinks that I am the first to want the joy of those souls redeemed yet suffering? Who contemplates that without My wanting it, no one would ask Me for neither one nor other souls in Purgatory? 5) The creature on earth believes that he does everything by himself, whereas he cannot do anything without Me. Nothing! Which one of you understands the meaning of nothingness? Rather, many think that by accumulating prayers and more prayers they succeed to move Me, as if I were hard of Heart and had need of My creature in order to help! 6) Pray, always pray and ask. I tell you: ask, but with a humble and simple heart, knowing that it is My goodness that can perform the miracle of redemption. And above all, pray for the motive I want, because no human reason can compare with My Will that wills everything in you for the reception of the prayer you offer Me. 7) Thus to convince you, I invite you to consider that the souls in Purgatory experience great consolation by the fact that in praying for them, you do My Will. Consider that they are opposed to certain of your prayers asking for immediate redemption. They want redemption only when I want it. 8) Also consider what sum of sacrifices I have imposed upon Myself for love of them and how happy I am to have saved them. Therefore, reflect well in that I am the driving wheel of your prayers; that you do not pray by accident or by your own notion, but by My Will. 9) From this does it follow that perhaps I should listen to you in a short time or after a long time? It is not a matter of time, but of the fulfillment of My particular conditions I set with respect to the soul that must be redeemed or of the person or persons that implore Me. 10) There is no rule as for that aside from My liberalMESSAGES 57

ity. The salvation of the purgatorial soul depends on the fulfillment of the conditions set by Me. And from he who implores Me, the last of these conditions is not attainment of a certain degree of divine love which varies from person to person. 11) Everything is harmoniously united and My work of salvation has an admirable crown in the redemption of the very acute hardships of Purgatory. 12) Certainly, the power over those souls is My absolute prerogative. And the Church on earth is completely in truth in this matter as well as in all others that belong to the mystical wanderer. Ah, if only it were understood what maternal longing moves My Church to pray for the dead and, above all if it might be understood at least a little, what the Church puts forth in the closing prayers when it implores a reception by My merits or for My honor. 13) In return, a great deal of exchange could continue. Rather, I limit Myself to telling you that the souls in Purgatory, delivered by Me with your prayers and offerings you make to Me, consider you very beloved brethren to whom they owe their happiness at a subordinate level. 14) Thus, you all cannot imagine how grateful they are to you and how they pray for you… You take away from them the most intense suffering that a good soul can experience and so, how can they not be thankful to you for that? They see My goodness, but they also see your help and they know how to respond with a very warm love for the gift given to them. 15) Pray for them, pray! I will hear you and they will help you avoid Purgatory. Remember, what you do for them, I consider done to Me.

My dear little children, confide your thoughts to Me. When aches and afflictions that seem to have no end overtake you, remember My Assumption into Heaven. 2) The day on which My Son’s Vicar declared the dogma of My Assumption, he placed on My countenance the last splendorous diadem and has placed it on earth in a very solemn way. 3) I have had everything in Jesus; He has refused Me nothing and could give Me no more, because in taking Me to Heaven He has wanted to give Me, His Mother, all that is good. My body could not remain on earth because if the Most Holy Body full of affliction had already been glorified, then, also Mine that begot Him should be near His. A special love, a unique glory has been reserved for Me.

Beloved ones, your kind Mother watches you, do not despair. I provide everything; I assure you that I provide those who love My Jesus with everything they need, because every gaze of love you give Him is for Me a flame that burns in My Immaculate Heart… You all think about Jesus and I will think about you… 5) Do not abandon your children, very soon you will have to account to Jesus for them, make of them true children of God. 6) Renew your acts of faith; renounce evil, arrogance, and destructive pride. Form a chain in order to intercept the wickedness that the master of treason and deceit vomits. 7) And lastly, hold a retreat, only the group. You will pray a lot and will read all the messages that were given to you with respect to the division that will come. Analyze them with love; learn from each other. Do not allow yourselves to be damaged by deceit. 8) Do not be whitewashed sepulchers because everything you do on earth is known in Heaven; there is nothing concealed before the Father’s Divine Gaze. 9) You, My little ones, are the roses and carnations that I have planted in My small garden. Many of My children have been converted to rich fertilizer and I bless them for this blessed work with which they help Me save hundreds and hundreds of souls for the Kingdom of the Great Promise. Continue working with simplicity, humility, and material unselfishness. 10) My children, everything is being accomplished; the trials of the poor are now beginning to occur, but, My little ones, I beg you that while your needs are greater, be more generous with your neighbor; only thus will you have abundance of graces and blessings from God. 11) Please, before getting together to pray, sprinkle the place with holy water and pray the Creed, for it is a powerful prayer against the snares of Satan and his henchmen. Whenever possible, as you pray the Glory be, burn some incense, not much. Here the Celestial Choirs will join you singing. 12) I will be your refuge in the midst of storms and tempests; I will be your warmth in the midst of icy times. But I want to warn you that great trials of fidelity will come, you will be tested in faith, you will be tempted to doubt the Father’s Divine Will and the Son’s Mercy, the Light of the Holy Spirit, My purity, and the presence of the holy angels. 13) Your Mother implores you to be strong, to trust in the Most Holy Trinity, to accept the company of your Guardian Angels, to make devotions to the Saints and Martyrs that rejoice in the Glory of Heaven. 14) Do not fall to the falsehoods of fanaticism; the enemy is much more astute than you.

Hope is always green because it does not turn pale with the fluctuation of human things, it does not pall with the winds of setbacks, and it does not change under the rain of contradictions. Here I have explained the mystery. 2) Hope supports you solidly. After having had experience with appreciable desperation, give Me your instability and I will give you My stability. Where then is your difficulty? It all dwells in hoping against all human calculation, and after having imagined all that was possible, one cannot go farther. 3) Trust is an act of hope, joined with love. Furthermore, to trust is a complete act in which faith, hope, and love are admirably joined. Joining these three virtues is so divine that My Heart exults and concedes at length all that is asked of Me with confidence. 4) Why do you shiver, oh My child? Why do you tremble, oh unskillful one in the proper ways of those who excel in the fulfillment of their studies? Why do you want to wake Me up, if I sleep so well in your little boat agitated by the waves and wind? No, do not intend to wake Me; do not tell Me anything because, I do not really sleep, I only rest on you. I am fought so in other places, why do you not want Me to rest on your little boat? 5) You fear the words; you fear the rigor of the inclement season. And what better reason to trust in Me? Walk tranquilly; I do not abandon you.

divine resonance that is produced in each one of you who hears My Word is all Mine and no one, not even you, could add even the smallest vibration to this sentiment. I am the one who acts; let your God act in the temple that I have made for Myself, creating you like Me and regenerating you to the new life in order to then communicate to you My own life. 2) Do you not see that I have cause to incite you and conveniently instruct you on how to follow My norms of love? Follow them and you will get to that most beautiful point, the one to which I have predestined you. 3) I tell you many things and all are appropriate to your beloved souls; perhaps I tell you so many that you have difficulty in the choice. But, since all are

good, take them as they come and meditate. The dominant topic is love. And so it is: love dominates Me and I want it to dominate you too. Listen to these exhortations and everything will be understood, nothing will remain forgotten. For, if you dedicate yourselves to love, as a result you will have everything with you and nothing will escape you, because each time you will return to My lesson about the need to do everything with humility. The lesson on the duty to help your loved ones will come back; in love you will find the essential reasons for all acts of virtue, of the sorrow of having offended Me by sin. What is more, I tell you that in loving your spirit will be filled with all the virtues without you noticing it. 4) Therefore, I ask you for love. And who gives you love if you yourselves do not even have a crumb on your behalf? You know, My little ones, ask Me for it; desire to love and I will be happy to make you great in love. 5) How happy is the heart of the lover! And, why? Because it sees the loved one happy and also because it is true that everything the loved one asks for, will be granted. For that reason the lover is tranquil. He knows that I will give all help and for the same reason takes care only to stay in My arms, everything else being in order. 6) The life I give you has this precise object, to love Me. What is the use of everything else? It is useful only if it serves to love Me, since if your life points to a different end than Me, it deceives itself and tries to deceive. 7) Little by little you all will take into consideration these words that I state because of your affection, because I am very interested that they do not escape you and that you capture them all and transform them into acts of love. 8) Look, My beloved ones: I have not said good works because it would have been the same, I have said works of love, so that you will erase from your mind the concept of usefulness, the calculation of the supernatural. In other words, so that you may move away as far as possible from concupiscent love, which is holy in the act of good, nevertheless, it is not divine love but love of one’s own well-being. 9) Do you want merits? Do you want to get good fruit from your works? 10) Do it without thinking about yourselves but of Me who proposes them. The merits will be enormous, greater than the ones pursued for love of chaste concupiscence. The prize? Very big; it will be bigger than the one procured with the limited vision of one’s own good, or of another creature. 11) Therefore, think and follow My Divine Love and you will have much more than you expect.

I have suffered a lot, My children, on seeing that the infernal foam, with God’s permission, would have initiated the great fight against My Divine filiation. I spent days of great sadness because a mother’s heart suffers much when she knows in advance the dangers of her children. Thus I suffered for you when I found out of the great assault that Hell unleashes on the present day world. And I prayed for you. 2) But today that the hour has come and I no longer find myself in a passive state, but in the state of Glory and joy, My concern for you is no less. On earth I could even cry because of pain; here in Heaven, even in the immense happiness reserved for Me, I am thinking of you, beloved children, I am giving you abundant help. Now I can what I could not on earth; now I want to show you who your Mother is. To My appreciative children, the ones I have favored with My blessings, I direct these warm exhortations of the most sincere maternal love, an unrivaled love among all mothers. 3) Children, you who really have grown in My arms, be simple, do not look for the material but for the spirit. Impose this kindness that pleases Me so much: work for Jesus together with Me. I will never leave you, but exert yourselves more to be Mine. Together let us do many good and beautiful things, because I will teach you all things that are pleasing to Jesus. Solely to be simple of heart… 4) Be generous like Jesus. I abandoned Myself to Him; convince yourselves of it. Try to give yourselves a little more to Him, more than you have done up to now and you will become true children of Mine, that is, generous. The knowledgeable of the world judge themselves happy if they can help their friends. Without thinking of anything, how much happier will you be if you surrender all your energy to Jesus, your true friend. 5) Therefore, be simple and generous and you will be able to defeat Hell in all its shrewdness. But remember My wish of working together with you all. If you do so, I promise you victory, I promise you that nothing will harm you if you believe Me. Reflect in the fact that Jesus himself wanted to be with Me for thirty years because He loved Me tenderly. 6) My children, I do My duty as a Mother, you do what corresponds to you as good and diligent children of Mine. God wants it; I want it too.

Clergymen and faithful ones give the awaited proof and in the mystical members of the Church, the new and vital spring of clear water overflows. 3) I will not stop here; I go forward towards the predetermined goals and, with the consensus of men and the discipline of the new Church, will repair everything because it is falling in ruins. 4) My martyrs ask for this: that peace may descend on earth. And there will be peace! God’s Son promises it and it will last, without any other obstacles being able to prevent it. 5) I will restore the Church, then I will gather Mine and will continue towards My new Jerusalem. I will admonish Satan's followers and they will be defeated by Elijah’s sword. 6) Small people, you have acclaimed Me in the renewed passion among the peoples, now the angelic army sent by Me will cry out for you. 7) Peace on earth, love shouts; peace in all hearts! Slanderous and rebellious spirits, flee and disperse into the infernal night. 8) Being united helps you because shortly you will be assaulted, not for your defeat but for the great humiliation of the eternal rebel… Peace, peace is coming and with peace, love.

He lives always honored and exalted in the Most Holy Trinity. Christ, Son of God, Son of Man, and His exaltation is this: the Word, having taken a human nature, was subject to it, not installed in the honor that would have been proper for Him as the second Person of the Trinity, but as the ultimate man, as a representative of all men. 2) But He represented them in the despicable act of sin and for that reason He was made victim, because He assumed all the human faults in a single nature and, taking onto Himself the full range of man’s ma-

lice, answered for it as His own. Yes, the Christ you adore must have fallen to the most profound abyss so that His mission would be truly Divine. 3) Hence, He now lives in the Most Holy Trinity. He, who wanted to, knew how to expiate all evil. And having done all this, He fully enjoys all goodness and lives highly constituted in all power and glory. He has climbed from an intimate despicable act to the most sublime height; in Him, the transformation has surged to the heights that only God could reach. 4) Yet in this, the mystery of His Humanity is barely illuminated, a mystery that makes all human minds lose their way. And if it is not possible to speak about the mystery of Humanity that relieved evil, what could be said about the mystery of Humanity with respect to Divinity? What must you say about the mystery that centers between Jesus and Divinity, as recipient of infinite Goodness? He not only took upon Himself man’s evil inheritance, that is sin, but He also carried the inheritance of endless Goodness, inasmuch as two natures, the Divine and the Human, existing in one person. He contained all attributes from the first, while from the second He embraced all failings. 5) How noble will Christ’s Humanity be seen in Heaven! Oh, how all your knowledge will be surpassed in which you, nevertheless, will find delight. Now it is hardly a distant reflection, later it will become a meridian light; now you find yourselves in a closed place where the Light of Christ comes just as sunlight gets to the cellars. 6) Here where we are, Jesus is the sun that in itself illuminates us by penetrating us. We as well are light, but we are His Light; we too illuminate, but with His splendor. We lead men to Christ, because He lives in us and we in Him. 7) Our mystery is unknown on earth where man does not see and if he sees, it is limited. But we pray equally. Yet knowing that we find no comprehension on earth, we pray for you because Love wants it so and all His Desire is a delightful pleasure for us. But the mystery perfected, time concluded, the Light and the eternal will be seen. Then you will know what we do for you and you will be grateful beyond all high praise. 8) Raphael, God’s Archangel tells you these things, very few things, and whoever enjoys the favor of hearing these words, reflect over the work of the Angels that God has placed beside each person in a union of charity.

You have returned to your work, My little child, to serve your Lord who always waits for the generosity of His children to spread His Mercy and Love in the world. 2) Be careful, child, there are many enemies beyond the path you walk on that do everything possible to drag you down outside of righteousness. And now they are setting the trap into which they plan to make you fall. 3) But later on, in the gesture of embracing you, you will see who is the one who loves you and protects you of so many snares. My Love remains, but I hide the Light; the Light remains, but I hide the Love. 4) I am here; I am near you; I always watch you and I hide because I love you. But you, seek Me; do not let yourself be defeated by inertia and you will find Me. Everything that bothers you is good for you. With respect to your weight, do not complain. I concede to you that you not have the weight of sins; do you think this is not enough?

Away from the noise of the world you will be near Me. Near and not far, faithful and secure, good and not tasteless: these are the three stages that you must fulfill in order to possess Me much more than in the past… You must study from the book of life, and only at times will you be able to raise your eyes to see Me in a less indirect way. I am preparing you for the eternal nuptials and I am jealous of your soul. Summon up courage from time to time, consider that I guide you; furthermore, I bring you to Me because away from Me nothing can happen. Sin itself that is outside My Will, cannot be committed without man making use of what I have given Him and maintained. 2) Hence, how wise is he who allows himself to be led by Me! It seems that the creature abandoned to Me does not act, nevertheless, he acts with so much effectiveness that he has the divine strength in him and diffuses it to those who are near and far. On the other hand, what ignorance to want to govern himself! 3) You are familiar with some roads that lead to surrender. I Myself led you and manifested to you beauty and difficulties because I love you very much.
MESSAGES 61

Now, look how your experiences will be transformed into a new experience, holier and more divine. Enough with abandonment: now you must travel the road of uniformity. I wait for you here; I direct you and here you will find My stability. 4) I speak to you in the name of Love. I am the Love that attracted you; you are the spark I have released. Do you see how much human trash lies in the mud of sin? My spark, where do you want to go: do you want to return to Me or attach yourself to that trash? Do not tell Me that you do not want to choose, because you are capable of doing it. 5) Now that you have chosen, I will reward you: know that soon I will give exterior shape to your election and she, whom you think about with true filial enthusiasm, will be joyous. Together you will do her work. Act without hesitation.

am happy that you seek My consolation and that you place it before everything else. But take heed: I possess in Me the consolation without sharing it with you, just so that, deprived of such sentiment, you will make an effort to thirst. 2) Do you want peace? Do you seek tranquility? You have it because you are in agreement with Me. You lack the sentiment of peace, you seek pleasant tranquility; but how will it help you now? 3) Think of Me, not of yourself. Think of My happiness and be happy with it. You truly love Me if you enjoy My tranquil goodness. Of this you can be sure, and surer than ever that you can never go through the grief of not feeling the benefit of My Love. 4) I call you through impassable roads. Come to the chaste Love; come to the Kingdom where no shade blocks the luminous sun of My intoxicating and inconceivable happiness. 5) I have spoken to you; I who am the infinite Love, the Love that picked you up, wounded from the road of perdition. I have spoken to you, I who am the Omnipotence, the Light, and the most perfect Trinity. I have been preparing you and, through you, many brethren attacked by evil today. I have been educating you all, trying to teach you, especially love and unity, and charity among yourselves… If some of you have assimilated and others have not, it is a pity. This Great Crusade of Love is almost over and now you will verify the abandonment. 6) It will not be for long, do not be afflicted - rest, and wake up… From the road of forgiveness you have come to the road of gratitude, from this one to 62 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

the love of tenderness, from tenderness to the joy of loving Me and listening, from there to the destruction of your self-esteem in order to continue transforming you completely. By the way, it has been a long time that I have been managing this, and you have now arrived at the golden threshold where it is written: “love is worthy of being loved only for itself.” 7) Knock, even if you do not hear Me, knock again; the great Spirit that has directed you on earth will have you enter into the pure, most ardent love. That Spirit, from here on, remains with you to guide your steps with Wisdom towards the road of love and surrender. 8) For your consolation and greatest certainty I must assert once more that it is an unworthy spirit, disguised in its favorite vestments of arrogance, division, lies, and deceit, that has approached many of My children with false messages and deceiving prophecies. My little children, several times you have been able to verify it because each prophecy has been cloaked with an element that was never fulfilled. 9) Therefore, stay where you are, growing together. A little longer and you will have to nourish yourselves with the Banquet that My Mother, the Blessed in Heaven, and I have been serving you with humility, and with concrete things that you have been able to continue verifying. Do not participate in a dangerous yet certainly useless game. Do not allow yourselves to be seduced by the song of the mermaids that sweetens the ear. Do everything possible to remove the cause of hindrance… I do not want to see you disoriented by the gyrations that Satan may do. 10) Renounce evil, arrogance, and destructive pride; accept the virtues I give you: humility, patience, faith, hope, and charity to the body and soul. Accept the virtue of loving the Love of Loves. 11) It does not matter that you do not feel Me so perceptibly close, I am with you all until the consummation of time. I am the loving Father to whoever loves and obeys Me, and severe Judge to whoever refuses Me a heartbeat of love and obedience. His Misery is great, but My Mercy is infinite. 12) Be tolerant towards your brethren, even when they walk away; not to everyone have I given ten talents… The sun does not cease shining during an eclipse; the celestial bodies are the ones that intervene and obstruct its vision. They are the nebulae of the faith!

Paul

your small notebook. Christ ascended into Heaven and comes back to earth in a different aspect. Having risen in Glory, He returns dressed as a victim at the hands of His priests. 3) It cannot be that being in Heaven, He assumes the vestments of a sacrificed victim, humiliated, and not glorious at all. Nevertheless, He assumes the vestments of victim in the bloodless Sacrifice of the Mass. Not symbolically, but the Victim is veritably sacrificed and the value the Mass has is the same as that of Calvary, or of Gethsemane, because the Victim is the same, present but invisible to you, except for some chosen souls. 4) If men would obtain from the Mass that which corresponds to such a great sacrifice, it would be enough for their salvation and complete redemption. Indeed, they obtain very little because when in attendance they are distracted or very absorbed in thoughts that, if they are saints at any other given moment, they are out of place at the Holy Mass. 5) In the meantime, what happens? The celebrating priest and the faithful are not in unison during the Holy Sacrifice at the altar and for that reason one is distanced from the others, and the latter rarely or loosely joins him. Good game for Satan, who busies himself in all he can to deflect the benefits of such a great sacrifice, to the detriment of men. Yet, if one understood the real significance of the Mass that brings Christ humiliated and sacrificed to earth, there would not be so many faults in the world and Christians would be wise in strength and understanding. The means exist but whoever does not utilize them removes from himself the effects that are tied to that divine cause. Too much indifference, too many pious distractions, and too many considerations out of place surround the Victim who is sacrificed! 6) Great are the means, but evidently the affections are paltry. One does not know the passionate cry, the afflicted complaint from Jesus: “…I searched and did not find.” Even today Jesus repeats to you His reproach that has not been understood: “Could you not, then, watch one hour with Me?” 7) Many of you are in a hurry, many attend Mass to be in right with your conscience, in the sense that in disobeying the Church, you would commit a grave sin. And, Christ? Who thinks about Him? Who sees that He is sacrificed and crushed under the appearance of bread and wine? Who notices Him desirous

of gathering onto Himself all the wills in order to make one single love? 8) How sad to see these things and to partake of the thoughtlessness of almost all Christians, including some celebrants! 9) Nevertheless, brethren, it can be remedied. The ardor of the Church by its Founder is not exhausted and will never be. It has all the means at its disposal and will renew its children who live as children of the dark in the midst of the era. But you Christians stir yourselves because Christ cannot consider His those that sleep. Try to change; try to rise up to the name that is the greatest title of honor. 10) I say this to him whom I untied from Satan’s chains with prayers to Christ that carried Me to the third Heaven in order to caution you and all of good will. 11) I, Paul, testify and confirm that God’s Grace acts in you for the Glory of He whose Name in Heaven, on earth, and in Hell manifests His Divine virtue with power. 12) Pray faithfully, pray in unison, especially in the Mass. May Love and your peace bear witness that Christ lives in you. Comfort the lowly; be completely consoled and remain prisoners of the great Selfsacrificed, of whom you are irremovable property. 13) Paul of Jesus, Apostle of all people, blesses you all with all his heart.

Among so many earthly creatures, I have chosen you precisely to give you riches, light, and love. 2) In this way I fulfill My Father’s Wish with respect to you, because no one can come to Me without Him conferring it. 3) But while your earthly life unfolds among the snares, it is likewise necessary for you to take those steps that will give you the certainty of love. And in this I am helping you as I allure you to Me because only with My closeness will you be able to be helped. Consequently, I teach you all like no one else could ever teach you, and I do it on purpose to enlarge your hearts through the words that testify to My great desire of making you happy and full of Me. But you fly like bees over diverse flowers, and then you do not return home to build My nest of love; you are one-half bees. 4) For that reason I am calling you again for a greater understanding, to encourage you to leave your care to Me. Do not worry; I take care of everything, even to take away your thirst. But first, let yourselves be guided by this your lover. Allow Me to give you very necessary instructions to know Me more among you; afterwards you will see. 5) Souls who listen to Me, you are gathered for this purpose: to make Me a crown. Remember I make no promises to you beyond the ones you know, because I want you to desire Me. I want to be appreciated for what I am. Whoever does, has everything I possess: beauty, goodness, Omnipotence, and love. 6) I remind you, then, to always think of Me, because your anxieties do not produce goodness... Pray for your unity.

prohibition that is not Mine… 4) Be silent when the Spirit speaks to you [Catalina]! Like the rustle that the wind makes among the firs, thus blows this soft breeze that takes the word of God to men. It sweetly blows to revive, to warm, and to kindle man’s heart. It is the Spirit that enlivens, vivifies, and gives life to all living beings. Always listen to this breeze! 5) All of you, make reparation for all the sacrileges that are committed with My Body; each day I travel the road of My Passion and you can notice how My Sacred Body is. Do not receive again My Sacred Body in your hands. 6) Always repeat this prayer: “I am happy because I am loved by Jesus, My Savior. He turns the bitterness of My tears into honey, pain into joy, suffering into delight, and all sorrow into love towards My King and Savior.” 7) I am so pleased with Fridays’ prayers… If all My Priests did this, the world would be different. Many of their own sins are forgotten because of that holy hour… Endeavor to always end with a Mass. Complete thus your Eucharistic meeting. 8) My daughter, do not neglect the book, do not neglect the delivery of those papers. Why do you all gain courage and then fall? What will happen when the messages stop and I will not be reminding you at each moment? There is an urgency to resolve your personal affairs; hurry with the book, I want it perfect…

shall come full of Light, surrounded by love, and crowned by a myriad of festive Angels. “Blessed be the One who comes in the name of the Lord,” will be repeated as the crowning of the greeting that on Palm Sunday received My Person, who in a humble way was on the way to martyrdom on the Cross. 2) At the time it was a sentiment of the people; a sentiment, therefore not controlled, and in its naturalness and spontaneity, pleased Me a lot. On the other hand, the greeting of the redeemed souls assembled for the Final Judgment will be given with complete knowledge and total love. They will tell Me, “Come, blessed One of the Father. Come in order to judge us all, because the glory reserved for You is a true joy – glory reserved because of the highest power You received of being able to judge everyone.” 3) I shall give each one the recognition that he deserves, but I shall stop at those who did not want any recognition and desired on earth that all the Glory be for Me. Souls that love Me will not have to flee when

I shall solemnly say: “Come, you, My beloved one, you have been very desirous for Me to triumph over everything and everyone, including yourself. And you desired this triumph of Mine so much that, willingly and wholeheartedly, you even asked Me with tears in your eyes that I alone appear before the face of the world and of My Father. Well, then, it is My habit to fulfill the wishes of My loved ones. Since with that wish and by proceeding in this way on earth you have already hidden yourself now in the trial that assembles the universe, I give you the retribution that only I, your God, can give. Sit and you yourself receive the honors that are due Me as a Man, and everyone who may do 'Your Will' [the Father's Will].” 4) That day will be an indescribable triumph; never will you be able to imagine what I have prepared for you, because if it is true that I shall be the Judge, it is also true that you will judge with Me. Do not suffer because you hear these words. 5) If you love Me, there is nothing more beautiful than doing My Will, do you not think so? Did I not tell My Apostles that they would sit in judgment of Israel’s tribes? Well, since I loved them, and still do to the point of having them judge in My place, likewise I shall do it with My preferred ones. 6) Yes, that day I shall be on the majestic throne that Divinity has granted My humanity, but in Me all the chosen ones will take part, and triumph will not only be for Me. 7) You ask Me to speak of Myself and not of you. My beloved one, allow Me to make clear My predilection. It is right that all honor be reserved for Me, because My Father has wanted it this way, but I have the power to do anything I want and on that day of happiness and terror, I shall manifest this power in all its extension. 8) What is explicable is not much, almost nothing because I had to adapt Myself to whoever would hear Me, but what will happen, I mean the extent and the extension of the Universal Judgment, is so immense that no one can imagine it. When I call you to take possession of My Kingdom and I tell you: “Come, blessed ones”, all the now happy souls will move in an overflow of sparkling love and in a unity of knowledge and of love. Everyone will see Me immediately, in the infinite joy, in the most holy eternity that knows no sunset. 9) You will live with Me in the maximum splendor of triumph in which everyone will take part, because then I shall reveal everything done for Me. And He who loved Me more, will be closer to Me. Since you well know who has loved Me most, then you already know that My Mother will be the first to sit at My

right hand, as the one who most deserves to be at the Judge’s side. But She is a Mother and, as such, She has asked Me that then everything be reserved for Me. I must make Her happy, but I shall give Her the compensation for this Her fineness of love. 10) She does not want to judge Her children, but since She deserves to take My place and I shall allow Her to be at My right hand without judging anyone of Her children, you will see that Her Glory, precisely on that day, will assume a halo that will redouble the honor of being My Mother. She will not do anything – which is fine – but She will receive such homage that a greater one cannot be paid to Me. I have said that I must please Her, and this for Her will be the glorification of Her triumph; and She will be the only one who in the course of the judgment will see Her glory redoubled. As you already know, I do not allow anyone to defeat Me in love. 11) But also to be judged will be the spirits who won the tremendous battle and defeated Lucifer and his companions. It is the Trinity’s interest that on that day all, including the chaste spirits, be submitted to the power of a Man. It will be seen that My power is the same as God’s power, and all the Blessed Ones, men and chaste spirits, will be extremely happy because of this. 12) You, little creature, admire and return your glances to the pure Love of which everyone will be filled, and consider that all the Blessed Ones, without any personal usefulness, will see that God is worthy of being loved because of Himself. No particular interest will guide you, but rather only the interest because of Me. Think of the judgment under this light, and in pure love you will find the perfect fulfillment of My Will and the explanation for My predilection. 13) When your mind will be purified like this, you will be able to see with the purest light that everything I do then is plainly justified, and will fully satisfy Us, all of you and Me.

I want to always make use of you, even in those dark moments in which you think you are useless in everything. 2) Love of My sorrows, beloved child of Mine, why do you worry so much about what you cannot solve? Trust in your God… Love Me and pray: make reparation… The offence to Heaven is so great that not one second of a day exists without the Holy Trinity being offended. Why do they hurt Me? Have I not given them even My last breath? Which one of you would do for your brother a thousandth part of what My Love did for you? 3) Never go away from the door of My Heart; do not cease the struggle for My greater glory. Your nothingness united to My greatness should fill you with strength! 4) Do you know why they fight My works? For meanness, for susceptibility to mistrust, for convenience. I will answer with the humility of a God mocked and misunderstood, but the bow cannot always be drawn. 5) I like to recognize in you what the world calls craziness. Since when have you worried about what will people say? Why begin to do so now? 6) Do not lose peace on account of the devil’s snares. I know by name those who ignore My true name: Love. They live their life, their poor life, and no one fulfills their responsibilities toward Me. Each day they get lost more and more and with them, those whom I have entrusted to them. They cannot even save themselves. 7) Do not stray, not even a centimeter, the course of your feet from the path that I have created for you: the return of love to My Eucharistic Heart. I know you are too weak, that I have to support you at every instant, but… it pleases Me so much to do it! 8) Pay attention, little one, it is not your time; maintain reserve with your insignias. I do not want anyone to touch My seal, not now that it is the beginning of My union with you. Do not give explanations; let them think what they want, because at the end what I arrange will be done… Disappear on the designated days; pray a lot. I desire that they visit you to pray together, and not visit you out of curiosity. 66 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

Do not forget that suffering is the price on earth, in which I am preparing a happier future for your country and the whole world. 2) (Jesus takes me to Calvary and I see the soldiers breaking the legs of the two thieves crucified with Him.) 3) If the Merciful Love of the Father had not decreed that I die beforehand, they would have broken My Body, just like they did with them. The secret of that will be revealed to all at the last judgment. Unite yourself to Me in a prayer of thanksgiving… Yes, I carried on My shoulders the most horrible sins of the entire world; while I agonized on the Cross, I did win My Father’s favor. 4) In today’s world there is a greater need of lambs for the sacrifice. But they must think that participation in the work of redemption does not only consist of sacrifice. One must depart from the Garden of Gethsemane and follow the path that I traveled. Without this there are no merits nor offering of the fruitful life, since the sooner the surrender of a soul, the more it glorifies the Father and, therefore, it will help save more souls and be the benefactor of all humanity. Daughter, so many graces it can attain for the Church and priests! A soul like that cooperates efficaciously to the conversion of sinners, the relief of the sick, the salvation of the dying, so that souls get to eternal happiness. 5) Because of that, think about souls needing the suffering accepted by you like the sick need medicine. I cannot take away the cross from the shoulders of the chosen souls, although at times they would seem to fall under its weight, because then the process of curing the souls would be interrupted and it would leave to perish those that still can be saved. When the debt of one or several souls is cancelled, thanks to their offered suffering, I take away the cross for some

time so that My victim souls regain vigor… 6) My children, turn your thoughts and unselfish love towards how to be able to save sinners, because you know very well that there is nothing in this world as precious as souls. Become holy so that you can really be My apostles, dressed as Christ, before My Father. 7) When My Father chooses a soul to give it the grace of being one of His chosen ones, on earth it is already destined to be like Me. And how should it be like Me? In love and acceptance of suffering. If in this you follow Me, My Father will recognize Me in you. 8) The chosen souls can try hard to save souls by praying fervently, practicing active and helpful charity, with meekness, humility, mortification, but above all, with the patient acceptance of suffering. 9) Go in your greatest trials to My Eucharistic Heart that is your nourishment in the earthly pilgrimage. Thus nourished daily, you continue the road to the eternal abode, where in glorious ecstasy the ones, which have made of their lives an offering of love to God’s glory and the good of souls, will recognize themselves in each other.

22-Jan-96

Jesus

My daughter, My mercy and forgiveness for you will always be in My Heart because you are faithful and you snatch from Me those sentiments, the fruits of love. 2) I want serenity in you. I am not saying for you to change your temperament. I am speaking of the serenity based on hope, trust in Me, of abandonment without measure in your Lord. 3) Stay in your place; always turn to My Spirit that encourages and leads you because what happens if you allow your humanity to intervene in what you undertake is that you drown His voice. Assume your responsibilities and let yourself be guided at the same time by the wisdom of He who leads you. 4) Many times you will have to crush your heart to reach Mine. You see now how My merciful Love has solved your small problems. All who give a glass of water to one of Mine, will receive one hundred for one! You still do not suspect how I will annul your financial preoccupations! I do not want bigger preoccupations in your little head than those that are for a single cause: Mine. 5) Tonight, accompany Me beside the dying ones…

Love of My sorrows, the “appearances” have ended for now. We have achieved what is necessary: to recognize the interior handwork, the floodgate of the richness of the unshakable truth. 2) The times are so serious, that it was necessary for you to go through all this to leave one more sign of My sorrowful presence. 3) Begin another phase, no less sorrowful - on the contrary. Love before you do what is necessary, love before anything else. A dark and thick veil has been lifted in order to let the uncreated Light pass… Be glad for the graces you received. I want you to assimilate this: one has to love to be able to receive the abundance of true Love. 4) On the days that your natural strength becomes weak, nourish yourself with My Love, with the covenant - not invisible - certain and visible with the God of Love. 5) I desire for you to be obedient, My daughter; I do not want anyone to touch your marks… I want respect and not curiosity for My insignia. There are many witnesses, and that is enough for now. 6) You shall suffer more and help Me more. Do you want to do it? Marks appear and, suddenly, all signs disappear so that My signature will be known. For a little time, I need you active for a mission… Do not fear, little one, I am not going to take anything away from you. You are Mine and I am your God. Seek shelter under the cloak of My Mother… A rosewood colored sanctity does not exist. But I shall be your strength… Little daughter, why are you disturbed? Persist in the evangelical truths that I teach you with so much love. 7) Oh, the world can be so dangerous with that varnish of candor…! Trust in Me, lock yourself up in Me.

Nourish yourselves with My Word, assimilate it with peace, and nurture your spirit with the divine sap of the Truth. In this manner you will comprehend that My Heart is opened to mercy and does not wish you harm, but rather wants to help you travel this very short road. 2) If you ask My Spirit, you will succeed in knowing Me, and thus love Me; thanks to that love, I will go MESSAGES 67

unto you to bless your lives and protect you from the mortal enemy… 3) Little daughter, all who pray or gather in My name on the days that My chosen ones have the marks of My Love, receive special thanks since there, on your hands and feet, just like on other of My children, I deposit caresses and kisses. Thank you, My daughter.

Jesus

All of you must give light to those who are in darkness. You must be children of Mine in peace. Have patience with each other, return good for evil. Only then will you be recognized as Mine. 2) What is wrong with you, My little one? 3) (I would prefer not to write, Lord, my responsibilities sometimes scare me…) 4) You are only thinking of yourself, and you do not realize that I am the only one responsible… Sainthood is not served on a platter; it is gained at a price of many and long endeavors, which are obviously sustained by My Grace. 5) You, close your eyes to what My Justice prepares, open them only to love and its promises. 6) Love Me like I love My Father, be a valiant follower of My martyrdom. I invited you to suffer with Me and you accepted. The peace of your trial is in Me. I shall never be capable of giving you what you cannot bear. 7) Help Me during this Lent. You ask Me for souls and I give them to you so that, in your own turn, you help Me save them. Do you not think it is a magnificent labor? 8) The drought razed many fields and My herd is thirsty… Embrace yourselves to My Cross, a source of water, shade, and light. 9) Look for the souls that are near and trusting, pray with them on the days that My marks are seen. This world wants to see a live God; it is hungry for Me but the devil teaches them to see everything on a screen and today. Their faith is no longer nourished in prayer, today the souls need to see, touch, and participate. Let your tears be balsam for My Heart. 10) I ask you all not to languish in your enthusiasm for your work. 11) The path is hard and the trials are harder; this is true. Nevertheless, you cannot even imagine the unequal beauty of your reward. And then to encourage you, I will give you a good portion of it on earth. 12) Why do you refuse to write the personal things that I tell you? 13) (Because I am embarrassed, Lord.) 68 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

Are you embarrassed by the words that your God tells you? 15) (I ask for forgiveness for being foolish.) 16) My beloved foolish one! Your humility pleases Me, but do you not realize that it is necessary for you to write that I love you more than My Cross, because I saw you in it, and from on high I pronounced your name? Do you not know that each word of love to you has a double effect on whoever reads it because it cures and saves? Do you not want other souls to love Me like you do, to surrender to Me, and wish to receive the same graces? 17) Then, do not conceal again what I order you to write: that I love you, that you are very valuable to Me, that I cradle you within My arms with special tenderness on the days of your sorrows, that you console the sorrows and sufferings of your God. Are you still grieving?

My children, pray the Holy Rosary more often, but do it with devotion and love; do not do it because of routine or fear, because you will be confused. Prepare and clean the path for My Son Jesus, in this path there must be no thorns or pebbles that will again wound the sacred feet of the Lord. 2) Children, do not make television your idol, do not fall in the temptation of participating in the modern era… Mothers, be faithful to your obligations as wives and mainly as mothers. Husbands and fathers, give a good example of peace and love. 3) Priests, My sons, endure like good foundations. If you were to crack, how could the walls remain? Renew your vows; draw back from the infernal trap that is before you. 4) My children, ask the Blessed Trinity to give you light and understanding, call upon the Holy Angels that I, your Mother, will send the ones you need for your safety… The Holy Angels will guide you through the road of salvation. 5) Make amends, little ones; many of you do not make the least sacrifice. Make them; offer God small and big sacrifices in this Lent… In a special way, He is lavishing much love, many blessings upon you, upon this nation. Make amends to the Most Holy Heart of My Blessed Son. 6) My little creatures, you are beginning to be pursued on account of the Most Holy Name of Jesus and the love that you have for Me. Do not fear, My little ones; I will defend you. In the midst of these tempests and storms, I will be your refuge. In this frigid

time, I will be your warmth. 7) I ask you for prayer; I ask you for humility; I ask you not to abandon Me. The hurricane that nears is disastrous; hurry and come under My celestial cloak. If you look for Me and you invoke Me, nothing will happen to you; I will be so strong that Satan will be shattered and he will be finished forever. 8) When someone offends and slanders you, give thanks to the Almighty, because you all belong to the blessed ones… I love you so much that I, your Mother, will take your place. It will be Me whom they slander, whom they strike; it will be Me whom they destroy more each time; they will attack My Immaculate Heart. I love you truly and I want you for the Kingdom of God, and for you to live eternally near My beloved Son, under the Light of the Holy Spirit, enjoying the delicacies that the Father prepared for you.

you feel sad, sing; when you are desolate, pray, and you will feel Our consolation… Do not be afflicted, on the contrary, rejoice and glorify the Father, because very soon He will send His beloved Son to reign among you all. 9) Hide your eyes, cover your ears, and paralyze your tongue to worldly things. Open your hearts to the Light of the Holy Spirit; uncover your ears to the Teacher’s Holy Word, and unseal your lips in order to praise and bless the Holy Trinity. 10) My beloved ones, pray and do penance for the conversion of your families and brothers in your community. My little children, accompany Me in My Passion on the first Friday of the month, making vigils of hope and atonement. 11) Console My Holy Mother who cries because of the loss of many unbelieving souls.

yourself in Me like a small drop of water in a glass of wine. 2) Do not be discouraged; remember the times that I placed obstacles before you. I then had My plans for you. First you needed to mature. Now I have admitted you into My school and I am the Teacher; learn from Me; I do not spare any weariness. I shall dedicate Myself to you from morning till night, and when you sleep, I will embrace you through your Guardian Angel. 3) (I beg the Lord not to let me go.) 4) You are the one who has let go of My hand, I am not the one who lets you go. Renounce your will, little daughter. Make the sign of the Cross again, do not be distracted when you bless yourself, think of the Blessed Trinity. 5) When you feel sorrow for your sins, I gather that sorrow like a bee gathers pollen and then with love, I transform it into honey in its own soul. 6) Do not be insensitive. Do not let routine be the one that brings you all to My table to drink My Blood and become intoxicated with it, but rather the fervor and the charity that is lit as you make contact with My Love. 7) Since Satan found out that he is going to become blind, possessed by an enormous thirst for revenge, he torments souls, making himself more subtle and skillful in his battle. But if you live in conformity with My graces, they will impede his influence in a great radius of action. 8) Remain in prayer, My children, even if you see your labors multiplied, because that is the work of the evil enemy who wants to confuse you. When

23-Jan-96

Jesus

Salvation does not depend on today, tomorrow, or yesterday, but on the last moment. That is why, you should repent and go to confession frequently. You are saved because I have saved you and not because of your merits. Only the level of glory that you receive at eternity depends on your merits. Thus, you have to make the intention to reform, and repeat frequently: “My Jesus, in Your hands I entrust my spirit.” 2) You must not fear judgment. I, like a humble lamb, surround the souls with indescribable love. The soul, who is anxious to be cleansed, arrives at the judgment to find itself with Love. On the other hand, the proud soul detests this Love; the soul itself distances itself from Me, and this in itself is Hell. 3) Do not try to convert others by force; it suffices with your testimony of life and with your prayers. In this way they are surrounded with a holy invisible force. All of this must be through My Mother. A haughty person is not capable of this. That is why Lucifer could not humble himself. My Mother takes all her children in her arms, caresses them, gives them her merits, and makes it possible for Me to overlook their faults.

I WANT TO ESTABLISH A NEW KINGDOM. CONCERN YOURSELF WITH OTHERS LOVING ME AS I LOVE THEM! CL-143
1)

23-Jan-96

Jesus

Flower of My Passion, I want you to conceal yourself, concealment not only from the eyes of others, but from your own eyes… I know, you want to know what I find in you and I am going to answer you. Nothing good! But I find My image engraved in your heart. You look for Me night and day without ceasing… I find that My Love like a flame nourishes your existence because if I hide you are sad and when I come back you celebrate Me. Do you think I am not sensitive to these signs of affection? 2) I have told you to consider Me Man-God because I am so, a child like any other child and a man like any other man. I look for a little love among men and I feel content when I find it… What do you think I find in many religious communities and so many other consecrated souls? In many of them I find only tumult and the spirit of this world. Nevertheless, on the day of the religious consecration, the greatest joy of the spirit, one says good-by to the murmurs of the world solemnly promising to only wanting to hear My voice. 3) But if the world speaks its deceit with tumult and false joy, it is necessary for Me to keep silent and I do, and little by little, My image is obliterated from the face of the earth and heart of man in order to model another one that substitutes Me. Oh, My child, if you only knew how many are the consecrated souls that dress in religious habit, and have this world’s spirit! 4) The remedy to all these wrongs is the return of all humanity to My Divine Heart, pierced by a lance on the Cross and that does not cease to bleed for all of you, the return through the path of love… I want to establish a new kingdom on earth, the Kingdom of great Mercy, the one that distances any sentiment of justice, bitterness, fear, and timidity. Of that Mercy that comprehends everything, that excuses and forgives all, that does not harbor the most distant remembrance of the faults and sins that weigh on the human conscience of nations. And thus, no one will fear to get close to Me, to search for Me, and above all, to love Me. 5) I promise My friendship and forgiveness to all men in exchange for a sincere and faithful heartbeat of love. I want to open My granaries to all humanity. Let rain fall at night over this guilty world, not a deluge of water that will submerge and inundate, but the torrents of My forgiveness and of My infinite 70 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

Mercy… My Church will be the first beneficiary through this message and the dispensary of My great Mercy; grain will be given fully from opened granaries, so that there will be no more hunger on earth, instituting this Kingdom of Love. 6) My daughter, My little one, burn yourself in the coals and flames of My heart. In a fire, the flames go up very high and they burn. If a soul, upon reading these messages, could embrace itself with love, the fire would be communicated. So do not deny Me what can console Me. I have so much need of My children’s love! Concern yourself with others loving Me, as I love them.

MY CRUELEST PAINS COME TO ME FROM THE RELIGIOUS AND PRIESTLY SOULS CL-144
1)

23-Jan-96

Jesus

Beloved daughter, you all go to confession frequently. When you are confessing, I open My wounds and My blood runs, drop by drop, while the priest gives absolution. 2) (After having lunch, I dream of Jesus, He was dressed like a beggar, raggedy, and in the dream I ask Him why He was dressed like that. Upon waking up, I kept thinking…) 3) I went to visit My priests to ask them for souls, but I did not get many. They are more preoccupied about themselves than saving souls. They should work tirelessly saving souls; they should deny themselves, but the majority does not do it although on the Cross I prayed for them: Father, into Your hands I place their souls, so that not one will be lost… 4) Pray and sacrifice for them, so that at the last judgment they will not be with empty hands as I now find them. 5) There are few sacerdotal souls that love the Cross. Many do not want to hear of the suffering and the self-denial. This is because they do not even ask to feel love for suffering. 6) They must frequently ask for love of the Cross, for them as well as for the souls under their protection. If they did, they would be given the grace of love of suffering, it would be pleasing to them, and they could do heroic acts and true miracles. I would give them the gift of a meek and humble love. They would receive the mystical grace of being able to find out the secrets of My Heart. 7) Do you want to sleep while I watch and My enemies surround Me? I am in the garden, kneeling, bathed in blood. Your preoccupation, My daughter, should be to embrace the immense multitude of souls in Purgatory, whose number is larger than the stars in the heavens, and the grains of sand on the

beach. Souls that by now should already be in possession of the glory in Heaven and singing the praises of God, but being negligent and careless, allowed their lives to pass in their worldly desires, as if the hour of accountability would never arrive. 8) Do not be afraid, little one, there are graces for you and for the world. Your thirst for souls would not reach its totality if you did not extend your preoccupation to these souls who wait for liberation. You must remember that the glory of My Father demands it. Do not forget that the cruelest and greatest sorrows come to Me from the religious and priestly souls on earth, as well as those that, because of the many graces of their vocation, should already be in Paradise praising the Triune God. The way of teaching the most essential truths of the faith has changed in the Church! 9) Little or nothing is now said of Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory; nevertheless, all of these places do not fail to exist. Many consecrated souls die just like they have lived. It is that the religious life is a doubleedged weapon. If one lives with earnest desire and love, Heaven opens; otherwise, it is to increase pain and torment. Many of these souls have been in Purgatory for centuries, not years, months, or weeks. Some will remain there until judgment day. How much pain to have to keep them away years and years from My Father’s presence! 10) In order to speak to you in a language you can understand, I will tell you that I feel shame from the loss of certain souls. I send them to the fires of Purgatory and I tell them: Go now through the world asking for the alms of your salvation from these purifying flames, since My redemption and My Blood have not been enough for you. This is how you are destined to walk wondering, asking generous and compassionate souls for the charity of prayers because for these consecrated souls; Divine Justice is harsher. 11) If you could only comprehend what is lost upon losing My graces and gifts! These souls hurt Me a lot and I ask Myself, to what good were all My pains and My Passion? I want to throw this terrible admonition to this particular type of souls. All this I have already said to other souls, although with other words. My language is always the same, but it seems as though they do not want, since it bothers them, to listen to Me…

MY GOAL IS FOR PRIESTS TO RETURN TO MY SACRED HEART CL-145
1)

23-Jan-96

Jesus

I do not want the consecrated souls to be silent, because only then will sin move away from them and they will grow in virtue. They must be alert to the sound of the bell. Through the voice of your conscience, I am the only one who is telling you all: Talk to the world, note the hour in which you are living. Do not be afraid; always attack from the front, always. Do not think of your life nor of your death, everything is in My hands. My goal is to make priests return to My Sacred Heart through the path chosen by Me. 2) To those who delay the beginning of atonement, especially to the priests, I tell you to answer the following question: Do you hold yourselves responsible for the souls who will be lost, but who could have been saved by means of My instruments? You must think about it three times before answering. I, the Lord of souls, cannot allow you to blame others for your irresponsibility. The superiors must obey My wishes and allow Me to act freely through My chosen ones. 3) I wait in the filthy and abandoned church sanctuaries. I can no longer live in the crumbling walls of the temples or in the hosts that have begun to decompose. I cannot tolerate so many souls to be lost because of the negligence of their priests. I want this labor of atonement to begin as soon as possible. 4) Are they surprised when a mother tries to save her son from mortal danger? Is not God’s love greater than a mother’s love? I have waited centuries to begin the purification of My Church, and defeat sin by means of My priests, to defeat Lucifer, and manifest My power that is greater than any power. The quickness and efficiency of this purification depends on the zeal of the priests. 5) Love of My sorrows, sacrifice and pray for the superiors who refuse to recognize Me in souls. Pray so that the Light will move them and they will know that I am the only Lord, the Superior of superiors, and I can act freely. I am the one who nothing or anyone can bind. My Kingdom is not tyranny, My power is not force; if I speak, it is out of consideration for all; obey before it is too late.

MESSAGES 71

Fight and work to get to the unbelieving souls; I make you responsible to increase your brother’s faith, to fill with love hearts that are frigid, hardened, and empty. My beloved, learn to reprehend your children and brothers with your example. If you speak of love, love; if you speak of faith, have faith; if you speak of hope, encourage; and if you speak of forgiveness, forgive. Only then will you realize that you are on the right path. 2) Do not let yourselves be taken in by swift words nor by resentments. Remember that the road towards Me is also prickly. If My Father has poured out His Holy Spirit over His people, it is for His honor and glory. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are to share; do not keep them, since they do not belong to you. My children, beloved, remember that your Celestial Father is foremost over all things; respond to the call of His Voice. 3) Go forward, let nothing distract you nor confuse you, continue the redeeming work in order to save souls; very soon your pains will stop being pains, your cry will be consoled, and your work will be rewarded. I ask you to comply just like I give you all that you ask of Me. 4) Remain in prayer and vigils once a month. I know it is a sacrifice for you, but I need sacrifices. 5) Be present frequently at the Altar where My Divine presence is exposed; do not rely on your own thoughts, on what your ears hear, nor on what your eyes see of the world. Only rely on My Word, on My Mother’s admonitions, and on the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Mother protests to the Eternal Father to stop His holy hand, thus appeasing with Her virginal hand the sounding of the Trumpets that will announce the great purification. 4) My children, hasten to reform, come to the Sacrament of Penance, the sacrament of the redeeming Love; come now, today is the day to forgive you. I am anxious to cleanse you. I solemnly tell you that the bridge between Heaven and earth is about to rise; that is why I ask you, My little ones, to hurriedly cross so that you will not remain in material realm, but rather that My souls come to the eternal. 5) You know, My beloved ones, what I like about you? It is your manner of loving, of directing yourselves to My Mother, who is also your Mother. Do not fall under useless fanaticism; be humble, simple, and tranquil. Do not despair to give, to know, beloved children, to make Me known before the blind, the deaf, and the world. 6) The temples will turn into real caldrons where the confused souls will fall and you, My little ones, will look for places to pray and offer sacrifices. My true ministers will spill their blood because they defend My little lambs. Do not be afraid, My children, but rather be happy because soon you will have Me among you.

My blessed children, I return to your little hearts to give you nourishment. During the time of hunger and misery, you must not hide the bread nor the water of Life; the more you give, the more you will receive. Children, do not admire exterior appearances even if they are My creation; admire what is inside, since that is the true work of My hands and My Love. 2) Little lambs, do not run after the false calling of the bad shepherd; again I repeat that the prince of darkness will work and fulfill marvels, but only to call your attention and make you forget your work as workmen of the harvest. Do not go around jumping from one place to another, nor be acting like judges of My true chosen ones; let My Sacred Word suffice. 3) Very soon all the bones will break, teeth will be like castanets and knees will kiss the land upon feeling the whip of the Divine Justice over the wheat fields. But all of you, do not fear. My Most Holy
72 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

(Facing the Holy Sacrament, in the neighborhood’s chapel…) 2) My daughter, My beloved little one, your visit pleases Me and fills Me with joy. Look at the solitude, how empty even in this chapel for religious. Come, get closer, My little lamb, I am the Good Shepherd and you are My little and beloved lamb. I have you in My arms; I caress you; I make you feel the beating of My Sacred Heart and My breath of life… 3) Your arms are opened asking Me for Love and I give it to you. Can the loved one deny anything to his beloved? You help Me suffer with patience, you have a right to the joy. Have I ever denied you anything? I have given you everything, even My life. I am always with you; you belong to Me and I love you more than you, My little love. 4) Beloved, may neither the name of the Blessed Trinity, the holy name of My Mother, nor the name of the holy heavenly Angels who accompany you, ever leave your lips. 5) Pray with Me: Blessed be My Father who blesses

you, My Heart that loves you, and blessed the Holy Spirit who gives you Light and Love. Blessed My Most Holy Mother, who protects you and takes care of things for Me. Blessed be the Holy Angels who accompany you. My right hand blesses you and My left opens the sanctuary of My Heart for you to enter and remain in It.

SEARCH FOR LOVE CL-149

MY DIVINE WISH IS FOR YOU TO BE THE NEW SEED CL-150
23-Jan-96 Jesus

1) The happiest moment for children is that which they can spend with their little friends, talking, playing, and having a good time. The same happens with Me. 2) I wear out Myself, I waste away Myself, I languish of love because My delight is to be with My children. I am Love that always wishes to give of Myself. I have chosen My dove, you return My love. I have asked for your consent, because I respect the gifts I give My creatures. You answered, “Yes”; you are at My disposal. The “Yes” was also asked of My Mother. It will be an intermixture of joy and sorrow. My daughter, I still have some things to tell you. Everything that you have written up to now will have prodigious signs, because I can do everything. Your love is sincere and this gladdens Me; it pleases Me so much! I shall give you many souls to satiate your thirst… No worldly wish, no matter how immense and intense, can make Me as happy as this thirst for souls. All religious souls especially My priests, should be desirous of souls. Do you think the world would change if I were to find spirits anxious for souls among the religious and priests? Who could measure My Love for the world? My Heart finds no repose… 3) Through you I want to remind men of My pact of brotherhood and love. I am Joseph, their brother, the one they sold to the stranger… My clothes are red because of the blood poured out for all of you, but come to Me, do not fear! 4) I have forgotten it all; I hold no grudges. Only love triumphs. I wish nothing else, provided you return to Me. I need to have you all with Me. I will

make you governors and princes in My Kingdom. To all I will open the granaries of the Pharaohs and there will no longer be hunger on earth, but remember only to return to My Heart. It is merely enough for a soul to thoroughly dedicate himself to consider My Love so that I come forward to him with My Divine gifts. I wish nothing else but to reveal My Love to the world. 5) I have manifested Myself in this town to call all with urgency to conversion; I want to rescue and reunite My little sheep. My feet bleed from walking so much through paths of thorns, through ravines and abysses; My hands torn from breaking the fences of eternal damnation, the doors of atriums where My sheep are locked up. Some recognize Me and come to My arms and I kiss them with love and mercy; others avoid looking at Me and deny knowing Me; they refuse My embrace of forgiveness. Others, the ones that cause Me more sorrow, are the ones that exchanged Me for money, pleasure, and have sold their souls to the worst and more perverse buyer, Satan, the Merchant of Darkness. 6) Little children, seeds of the new crop, come to My granary, remain here; very soon My Father will send His Angels to till the soil, the field of the Lord. Then He Himself will blow and puff, eliminating each bad seed and fragment. He will separate the good seed from the bad one and My Divine wish is for you all to be the good seed. Allow Me, your Master and Lord, to choose and select you with My own hands, to search for you and find you with My merciful look. You do not comprehend that, many times, the best seed is found hidden between brambles and thorns and the good sower knows how to recognize it upon seeing that this seed has not died in spite of having been harmed and distanced from the rest. He who wants to comprehend, do so, and he who wants to continue being foolish, do so. 7) I am the Lamp of the Eternal Light; My voice is the flame that will save you. Show your brothers, do not hide it, but do not hand it over either. You all are responsible for it; do not deprive your brothers of this flame; diffuse it and you will save many souls, you will save them from falling into the abyss. To My children who have the grace of recognizing My Word, I give them the grace of helping Me in the Work of Redemption; hurry because the clock is about to strike the hour. My holy Angels watch your work, they will bring to your hands baskets full of love, peace, and blessings that I shall send My workers, and they will carry baskets full of works of mercy, prayers, and praises to the Blessed Trinity.

Beloved children, My maternal love makes Me implore the Almighty to give Me the time within time and the next hour to find My little children and gather them around My Immaculate Heart. Little ones, fill your hearts with My maternal love, fill your senses with My teachings, take the celestial graces that I lavish over you. My little children, do not doubt My presence, do not refuse the love that emanates from My aching heart. 2) Pray the Holy Rosary, meditating before each mystery; say it very slowly, so that it will get to My ears like a soft whisper of love; make Me feel your child-like love with each word you recite; do not say it because of an obligation, nor to please your brothers; do not say it with screams or fanaticism, nor in a sensationalistic way; everything you do with joy, peace, and love, with humble surrender and childlike simplicity, will be received like a soft and refreshing balsam for the wounds of My womb. Yes, those three nails were placed in My womb; therefore, the womb of your Mother has also been crucified. 3) The Divine Will of the Almighty God has again been touched by My cry and anguish, and will permit your Mother to express all Her love and Her call to conversion and the return of Her children that walk down the wrong path. Many will see Me cry; few will be moved, and many of My children will mock… I suffer much because very soon the day will arrive when all knees will bend, eyes will look up to Heaven asking for mercy; they will cry out for pity and clemency; few hear Me; few will be heard. 4) My daughter, to you I ask that every Friday you turn your home into “The House of the Restoring Rosary.” In exchange for this atonement to My Sorrowful Immaculate Heart, you will all receive abundant graces and blessings, and when the longest night of creation arrives, I shall be with you, helping and protecting you; trust your Mother, children. 5) I ask that, one day through the means of communication, in the month of May, all of you consecrate the children and the youth to My Immaculate Heart. Do it in that month which you have dedicated to Me; do it before it is too late, because My consecrated ones will be the new army that will be at the front the day of the Great Battle.

Beloved flower of My Passion, I promise you that no soul will read these Messages without feeling better and closer to My Divine Heart. In this way I wish to satiate your thirst for souls. The sanctity of a soul is above the political events of the people. The world will find its equilibrium when the priestly and religious souls will have found theirs. The world’s peace depends on the sanctity of the Church, of its children. 2) So many things have been foretold to you about the world, the souls, the Church… Everything will be fulfilled because heaven and earth shall pass, but My Words will not. 3) (I ask if also those terrible punishments [will be fulfilled] too.) 4) Yes, those also, if the world continues in its life of immorality and sin. In other times My Mother had foretold the punishment, but today the hour is much closer. The stronger peoples will destroy the weaker ones. All human rights will be oppressed. Blood and fire over all the earth, things never seen since the creation of the world. The sky will only have reflections of fire; it will no longer be blue, but full of the smoke of the means of destruction… The earth will remain covered by a black blanket. 5) The time of the real Apocalypse is very distant and will be desired by God, while this one will be desired and prepared by man. 6) Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how many times I have wanted to bring together your children like the mother hen gathers her chicks under her wings and you have not wanted it! This is the message of love and sorrow of which I spoke about the other night. I am confiding it to you. 7) That is why I do not want you to make a book out of these messages; it will get to whomever it must, no more. The hour has not arrived. This incredulous and unfaithful world does not easily believe many things, because it is easier to cloak oneself in skepticism than in truth. It is more comfortable. Again I tell you no one is a prophet in his land. The world needs a sign in order to believe and it will have it. 8) My people have thoughts of war, while I have thoughts of peace. We are not made to understand each other.

There you have it, My daughter; why I was not telling you these things was because your heart cannot endure it. Transmit them to the group and to your confessor. 3) My daughter, I really cannot go on any longer. If humanity only knew what is prepared, everyone would prostrate to implore clemency and forgiveness, wanting to make penitence. Huge global disturbances, desired, wished for, prepared… Pray, daughter, pray a lot. 4) You have been frightened by the dream you had; do not be surprised. This is how I also am for the good persons, a deformed figure. My mouth is twisted, because the Truth that I have preached is always interpreted according to one’s own interests. Feet, arms, eyes, everything is diverted and directed according to one’s own interests. My Word is the one that seems more convenient… and My Heart? The Heart wounded by a lance? O, no, My Heart is not disfigured! Just like painters reproduce Me and present Me to humanity, that is how I really am for humanity: a laughable myth! You imprison Me when it is convenient to imprison Me, and liberate Me when it is convenient to do so. A twisted figure that is what I am. 5) But you, beloved daughter, tell everyone how My arms are opened on the Cross in order to receive all My redeemed ones and take them to the embrace of the Father who waits for them. 6) Say that My mouth is not twisted, but rather speaks about Love and Forgiveness. Say again that My eyes, even though closed in the dream of death, always radiate much Light over the path of My children and that he who walks in this Light will not be able to go astray ever again. Tell them again not to consider Me like someone non-existent or like a being who existed, a hero of history, because I Am Who I Am, I always live, always present, always active in the hearts of men, like a faithful friend who never betrays or abandons, and I am always ready to extend My loving arms to My child.

people, what have I done to you? I have loved you with an incomprehensible Love! Where I am, I also want men to be with Me. You still do not know Me. Everyday I sit at the table with you and I share your bread of joy and sorrow; but you do not know how to look Me in the face and fix your eyes full of tears on Mine radiant with love. I am with you. I live with you under the same roof. 3) I am the most faithful friend that can exist, and you go far away to confide your pains to a stranger that will soon betray you. How can you still not know Me? I am Jesus! Just call Me and I come. I come right away, and I save and redeem what is lost. Even when the property has been sold to the stranger in a moment of weakness, I will ransom it from his hands and return the possession of its goods. Just call Me at dawn, at noon, in the afternoon, or even at night; I shall come right away and I am never late. 4) My people! Call Me by My name, call Me Jesus, since it means everything. And it is not necessary for you to kneel before Me, because it is I who washes your feet like I washed Peter’s and the other Apostles’ and, if you tell Me like Peter did that you do not want Me to wash you, I shall reply that you do not know what I do, but you will understand later. 5) I shall wash your feet, those feet that have stepped on a slippery trail and are now wounded because of the blows against the rocks. I shall dry, heal, and kiss them, and you will heal and will not become acquainted with another trail except the one that leads to Me. Besides, why do you insist on not facing Me, or not wanting Me to wash your feet? You are like a capricious child who persists in not believing in who loves him. Do you not know that if I do not wash your feet, you will not be a part of Me? Do not tell me like Peter told Me: “Lord… No!…” Do not call Me Lord, tell Me: “O, Jesus; then not only my feet, but wash also my head and all of my body provided that I be a part of You.” The banquet starts soon and the guests are not here… 6) But I shall strongly yell and I make My angels yell to the four winds, North, South, East, and West and I shall congregate all My redeemers around the nuptial table prepared by My Angels and arranged with all carefulness and, then there will be only one kingdom: the Kingdom of Love. 7) Write, beloved daughter, everything I have dictated. These words will be sweet like honey and soft to the minds and hearts of many souls.

Courage, love of My sorrows, flower of My Passion, your intimate union with Me is what makes you share My grief and My sorrow for a corrupted world. You moan and cry; it is your passion united to My Passion. It keeps Me company! More so than to many saints, I have revealed My pain to you, the intimate pain that comes to Me above all from the consecrated souls. You will see the triumph that the book on the Passion will have… (If it is not a book, it will be a photocopy, Lord.) Book, I said, it will be a book and you will verify its success. 2) Thank Me, child, for having revealed My secrets to the small and humble of heart and having hidden them from the arrogant. Am I right to say that I find My image printed in you? And you will suffer by seeing it distorted in other hearts. I have already told you once to forget the bitterness of life in order to think only of the sweetness of My Love. O, My dear daughter, I could not offer you anything else in this world but a crown of thorns, three nails, a Cross, and a lance… Now, do you not have a little piece of Paradise? 3) Console Me, My little one! It is the hour of darkness of human understanding, made dark by the passions of pride, of egoism, thirst for comforts, and of the predominance of one's own self, “I”. 4) The good persons will be suppressed. It is the open battle between the militia of Heaven and the infernal one who for a certain time will have superiority. Man deserves this punishment, because he has distanced himself too much from God. Thus, humanity runs fast towards its great purification, towards this “renewal” that will not come without sorrow, without pain. It will even look like the triumph of evil over good, but those few who will remain faithful to My Word, will conform to a new nucleus, like Abraham, the true children of God. 5) The battle has begun and it will continue to get worse and worse, so much that even good people will not seem to have much confidence. Everything will seem to be lost. People will loudly yell: “Lord, save us that we perish.” But to get to this, one will have to suffer much and cry like the chosen people before coming to the Promised Land. I have told you that dense darkness will fall over the entire world, confusing man’s understanding. This is the punishment for a corrupted world!

children, I want to hear your FIAT; I want to change your lowly wills with My Supreme FIAT. Listen, children, for the Hour is approaching, but you all will not remain like I found you, now you are indebted to My Divine Mercy, be meek and humble like I was, am, and will be for all eternity. 2) Wait attentively for My Return, I am the Future, that future that good and trusting souls wait for. My children, you who accept My instructions will remain with the secured Bread; I have multiplied My Sacred Body for My followers, so that they will not go hungry nor thirsty like My poor haughty children who remain outside the home. If necessary, I will send My Holy Angels to nourish them. Tell Me, children, can a responsible father leave his little ones in total abandon? 3) Today you will be rejected, left out, slandered, but tomorrow you will be called and sought after upon seeing that you all have the true nourishment. I, your Lord, will make way among the multitudes to find you. Be sure, loved ones, to be last; do not strive for the first positions because I will ignore them. Only prayer accompanied by true fasting will make you worthy servants of the Lord. Chain up the haughtiness with the humble prayer of the Holy Rosary; go on meditating so that you will find the truth. 4) I foretold a desert. Well, you are now crossing it; it suffices to look at your surroundings and you will realize that you go on remaining alone. But do not fear; the Father and Son’s Holy Spirit will embrace you and the Angels will be your guides. 5) Speak of your Lord. Tell them that I love them and want to give them My Peace and Forgiveness. I will be waiting for them until the last moment to give them My embrace as Father, brother, and friend. 6) Know that when you murmur to Me words of consolation, repentance and, above all, love, My Heart multiplies and I pour out torrents of Mercy; receive it in your hands and keep it in your hearts.

And when you do not have success you must repeat the same, because in that case I also de-

serve your gratitude since you do not know of the treasure that I am preparing for you for accepting failure or suffering. 2) If someone blesses Me in the midst of his problems and sufferings, he does everything that can be done. I do not desire more. This is more valuable then if he were to whip himself during the course of 24 hours or strike his chest from morning till night. You must serve Me with gladness and also make others happy. Many souls who are close to Me exist, but yet cannot find Me at all moments of their lives. Happiness as well as pain can separate Me if they do not learn to be with Me all the time. But, if they are always with Me, then happiness and sadness will be indifferent to them. 3) You must learn to pray beyond the conventional prayers and for that you will take the following steps:  Always live in the presence of your God.  Experience as a true reality the fact that I live in you.  Find Me in each moment of your life, like I find you. 4) Even when you speak with others, stay in Me. Never take a step outside of Me. While you listen attentively to your brothers, offer Me their case and their souls. If I send you to a person who may ask you to pray and who asks you to implore to receive some favor, only say: “I shall do it”. I will hear you when that person really needs it, but if this is harmful to his soul, I shall refuse. 5) Plan on doing penance for all those asking for prayers but who offend Me. I cannot accept some prayers because the person does not trust Me completely. All of you want Me to fix your affairs to your liking; and do not think that I am the only One who knows what is best for you and that I can fix your affairs for your benefit and happiness!

andon you. Do not fear, My daughter; I want you to fortify your heart; you have walked a road unknown to you. How could I not love you? You take care of My interests with love. You must bear everything with faith and valor; fulfilling your own duties is to give Christ’s testimony. 3) They want to break the covenants of alliance with Jesus, and to get to this they have to be renegades. Oh, if you could only measure the width, height, length, and profundity of My Heart’s Mercy! Nothing can separate the creature from his Creator, except an absolute negation; a determined will to hate Me instead of loving Me. 4) I am always in your heart, day and night; and there I have My throne because that is the place of My repose, My chosen field, My preferred garden in which I have placed My pleasure. When I take possession of a soul, I make of it a masterpiece of grace. 5) From time to time, civilizations have need of renewal. History is full of examples. The old ones are overthrown; new ones are built, and this is the case with the present day civilization. Having refused the Light, men deserve the punishment of darkness… 6) Have peace in your heart, daughter; through the way of love and pain you will get to perfect union with Me. I have chosen you for this. But do not fear, I shall not leave you an orphan. I have a field that I must cultivate; this field is Mine. I must gather its fruit; souls must be shaken. Priests in the confessional should pay attention to this. 7) Convince yourself, My daughter, God is never in a hurry. My power is revealed in impotence. The more humble and rejected, hidden and forgotten is a soul, the more I look for it with My Love in order to unite Me to it. Be happy if you see that they hurt you, because then I look at you with pleasure. Is God’s Love not enough for you? What else do you seek, if the riches of Heaven and earth are locked up in Me? Have you not told Me that for you, Jesus is everything? Fine, live only for Me in this world; really, you do not need anything else.

Flower of My Passion, remain close to Mine. I will always give all of Myself to you, since you give yourself to Me. The granaries will be opened for you and you will be satiated. In My Kingdom you will no longer be hungry or thirsty for justice; your cup will be full and fulfilled. It is now full here below; it only needs to be leveled. 2) I want you to surrender yourself, without knowing that you are doing it! My Father, who watches in silence, will know how to reward you. Surrendering to Me is serene happiness for the heart; I will not ab-

IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO FAST ON BREAD AND WATER CL-159
24-Jan-96 Jesus

1) (By command from Jesus and Mary, I said my evening rosary for reparation for the priests who have abandoned the Church and Jesus.) 2) Oh, little daughter, some day everyone will see the interminable and burning chain to which My priestly sons are chained for having changed the confessional, site of mercy, to a place of sinfulness. These priestly souls in Hell curse incessantly the conMESSAGES 77

fessional with sorrowful screams, remembering the sins they once committed there. 3) Now I want to speak to you about faith. The life of every man comes from one of God’s breaths and that breath is the soul that supports life. If God touches the soul, He finds Himself, because the body is only a vehicle. When God finds Himself in a soul, the soul feels that the body no longer exists. That is why in the moment of communion My Body and Blood are in you. I live in you and you in Me. 4) Through Baptism, everyone is able to obtain the grace to experience God in one’s life. The devil is not capable of knowing what happens between man and God, because he cannot read thoughts. He is so astute that by only observing a person he tries to guess by the facial expression what the person is thinking. If he reads evil in the person’s look, he is certain that victory is his. 5) The best way for our hearts to unite is by loving Me. I want to give you great graces, but you must renounce many material things. You should use material things as if they did not exist, or as if their only end were to help you unite yourself even more to Me. When we will be united in love, your life and everything that you need, will be My responsibility; because of this love, this union, what is Mine is also yours. 6) Fasting is another thing about which I want to inform you. It is not enough to fast on bread and water. Fasting must also include the abstinence of anger, gossip and transgressions because, without this, your fasting and your prayers will be in vain and I will not listen even if you pray with outstretched arms. Frequently your lips are still wet with My Blood at Communion and, nevertheless, you hurt Me, offend Me and for that reason your fasting does not have the desired effect. 7) I gave you, for all life, the pain in your hands and feet, in a light way, compared to My pain. It does not matter that your nature is against the pain, what is important in My eyes is that you carry these pains with love. Bless and glorify Me for this, like you will for all eternity. While you feel the pain, your heart will rise towards Me, and while your heart is with Me, you will not feel the pain. You can prove to Me that you really love Me if you accept these sufferings from My Divine hand. Lovingly receive pains caused by the nails.

I choose the smallest and most useless things of the world to confuse the great ones of this century… The more inadequate the instrument seems for the job, the more skill I use to manage it, and thus, everything will serve for the accomplishment of My designs of Love. 2) Abandon everything that was created; fix in your heart a hidden cell and withdraw there and think only of Me. God speaks to men one way or another, but men do not know how to take in the Divine Voice. All these messages are not a love story, but a call to all those who will read them and resolve themselves to face Christ. Do not see anything of yours, but rather contemplate My greatness. 3) I desire for someone to start studying, in light of theological truths, every one of My words in the messages. I will give you [Catalina] unmistakable signs that no one will be able to deny. May the most learned men put all their determination to study them. 4) I have said it before: I want to be presented to the modern world like Joseph, who opens to all men the Pharaoh's granaries and distributes the grain in abundance so that there will be no hungry people on earth. I would like to be presented like the prodigal son’s father who, aged by the pain of his son’s absence, keeps watch from the window with a small light of hope for the return of his beloved son. I live among all of you, in the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the bread you eat, with the grandiose work of creation that never ceases. In this manner I am among you all, alive, real, with the perpetual sacrifice of the Cross and the Glory of the Resurrection in each Eucharist. 5) I want the world to know that God is unchanging, that He never lessens His Love for men; I need for man to know that I never set limits to My forgiveness and that I do not ask the prodigal son how he has squandered My estate, nor do I ask for account of his wickedness. It is a new Mercy that I want to give freely to this new generation. 6) The men who were seduced by material goods have gone away from Me, the alive and fresh water of all good. However, I ask them to return to their father’s house after so much experience, because the hour is late. I do not want to wait any longer for these My children; the banquet, the nuptial vestment, and the ring are all waiting for them.

My little ones, I am calling you to conversion, repentance, I want all of you for the Celestial Heaven. I come as Ambassadress, bringing you the invitation to Eternal Life, but few listen to Me. 2) You, children, cannot imagine what Heaven is like, the promised land; you cannot imagine the peace that inundates in this Kingdom. This is why you do not work painstakingly, with dedication and discipline to attain this paradise. Work like laborers and thus you will remain illuminated by God’s Holy Spirit. 3) Only he who believes in the Holy Trinity, and sees the Light, the Truth, and walks the Road of Sorrow and Suffering, is with Me. Thus, only he who lives under the Father’s Divine Will, and the Son’s Divine Wish is a prophet. Those who remain in the darkness, with arrogance, pride, deceit, and lies are My non-prophet children who try to drag My humble children to fanaticism, sensationalism, confusion, doubtfulness, and deceitfulness. Be careful, My little ones, do not fall in these traps for you are mortal, and I do not want to see you like little animals. 4) My daughters, why do you not cover your heads? I have been asking you, but you take it in jest and do not pay attention. Think about it, if you begin to cover your heads, at first others will see you as strange, but then, others will follow and these, at the same time, will obligate young people to enter God’s house with a little more respect, covered, and not in the manner in which they now stroll through the churches.

My children, I am the humble Nazarene who comes like an orphan looking for love, a beggar looking for charity, a sick person looking for consolation and a stranger looking for shelter and a place to rest. Do not deny Me; do not close your doors to Me. Extend your hands to receive Me; lend Me your hearts to rest; I beg you, My children. Look how I am: alone, hurt, tired, hungry, and thirsty for love from your souls. 2) Come back soon, My humble people, your King needs you, your brothers are in great danger. Satan has sent an army of infuriated beasts. If you could only see how many souls they have destroyed with their snares! They extend their tentacles to all corners of the world; they have transformed themselves

in all kinds of idols, confusing My beloved children. 3) Help Me, children, be a small army to guide your brothers who are blinded by power, money, pride, arrogance, everything that the evil enemy of souls gives in abundance. 4) Help Me, little ones, gather hurriedly all of My beloved sheep, fight and defend them even at the expense of your lives, remember that you will answer to Me when I call you. If you come before Me in a lavish and carefree manner, I shall dismiss you from My Kingdom, because you must have worried more about your well-being and not of your labor. And if I see you coming tired, wounded, and tattered, I shall tell you: come into My arms, blessed ones of My Father, and take possession of My Kingdom, you have been good shepherds. 5) My children, fight, spread out our love; you have in your hands and in your hearts the means and weapons for the great battle: prayer, praying the Holy Rosary, Penance, Eucharist, fasting, and Works of Mercy. 6) Do it, My children. I hold you responsible for saving your brothers; you will be the plank of salvation for many in this great shipwreck. Live all these tribulations with faith and perseverance, because the true purification will come later to this world soiled with wickedness and blindness. 7) Little children, come into My loving Heart, the refuge of forgiveness, peace, and love. 8) Accompany Me with love and surrender in this coming Lent. You celebrate it like just another anniversary, but no, My children, I suffer again and go over each moment of pain that I suffered to save your souls, and I still have not recovered all the souls that I paid for with the price of My Blood. Each anniversary that you celebrate I feel lonelier, tired, and in constant agony; each time I find more impoverished hearts. They have refused the richness of My Love, they have ill-spent the treasure of My Heart and, in return, they give Me crumbs, rebukes, pride, arrogance, and insolence. 9) My poor children, the blindness that you have with your ambition prevents you from seeing that I extend My arms to embrace you. You do not see My opened chest where My Most Holy Heart is in continuous offering of Love; you do not see My Divine face that emanates Light and Peace nor even My hands that are full of Grace that I want to give you in exchange for only the surrender of your hearts and humble souls to Me. 10) My children, how much sorrow you cause Me upon seeing you converted into foolish fanatics that run after idols, which you have created with your desires; you are so blind not to see the infernal hand in all this.
MESSAGES 79

And you, young ones, who begin to walk through the route outlined by the hand of My Father, follow the trail of My precious Blood, spilled for your freedom. Always walk beneath the Light of the Holy Spirit; return to being children so that My Mother can be your Mother. I want you in full sanctification; make your simple hearts grow more and more; do not reduce them with doubts and selfishness. If you love with purity and sincerity, learn to multiply more each time, so that you can divide your love in My Name. Do it like your Teacher who has multiplied bread and fish for all humanity until eternity. Remember, My children, love is infinite; it has neither weight nor measure. 12) Help Me save souls; My boat is still empty. In it there is the best wine, that is My Blood, and the most exquisite food, that is My Body, in order to satisfy the thirst and the hunger of all My children… Do not leave Me alone; help Me to drink all of these chalices of bitterness that I have before Me. Wake up, My children, from this heavy lethargy of indecision; remain vigilant and ready for the Great Battle.

Everyone is so occupied with his or her own mundane affairs! 3) You would want Me to walk over water, like an apparition, like I did with My incredulous Apostles when after Peter, having recognized Me as the Teacher, threw himself in the water.

formally with all of you? Should I be only a God seated on a throne of glory? You find Me in Heaven and not on earth, in happiness and in sorrow, in the depths of the ocean and in the hurricanes, in peace and war. It is always I, He who is! 4) Where could I have found a more sensitive and weaker soul than yours? I would have had to create it so that it could be useful for My designs on humanity. Your love, beloved daughter, your love that like a rare and exquisite flower during these times serves to encourage Me and makes Me repose as on a perfumed bed. Listen to Me: that love is a flower of paradise degenerated at Eden. In that garden of delights, this beautiful flower lost its fragrant perfume. It was completely disfigured and replaced by another love. Do you understand? If I find this perfumed flower in a soul, I see My image in it and make it similar to the Angels. 5) (Because of a series of circumstances, I have written the final copy of these manuscripts newly dated May of 1996, and the Lord, after having been silent for more than a month, tells me:) 6) You have finally devoted yourself to this. Should I not be first in your lives? Why do you not all live what you preach? My daughter, submerge yourself in My Heart. No, I am not mad; how could I be mad at you? Look at this wound, receive all of its Light and be filled with happiness…

NOW I MUST CONCERN MYSELF IN THE AFFAIRS OF MY FATHER, WHO IS IN HEAVEN CL-164

one, I want to instruct you on how to do My Will. It is important that you not want anything, not even to live nor die. Because when you wish for something, it does not allow Me to do My Will in you. So, you must not even wish to be a saint because, if you want saintliness, you would not be able to obtain it at the degree in which I can grant it for you. While, if you do not want anything, My Will completely works in you, because I Myself am the perfection and the holiness in you. 2) Your nature is imperfect and miserable; because of it you are not capable of wanting something that is actually perfect, noble, and holy. That is why you must let Me be the One to want all these things in you. Simply say frequently: “Your Will be done.” Do not forget that if the devil sees that he cannot obtain a soul, he uses his last weapon: make that soul believe that through his own effort he can reach a greater degree of holiness. So, in this manner, the soul concentrates on itself and not on God. On the other hand, if you are in the state of grace, and you

are still tormented by the thought of your past sins, you must firmly say: “Get away from me, Satan; I know I am nothing but Jesus loves me the way I am,” and with much faith, say the Creed. 3) (Praises and blessings, love, adoration and glory be given to the Saint of the Saints, by all the creatures that live in heaven, on earth, and the sea. Special adoration and praise to the name of Jesus, present in all the Consecrated Hosts. O my Jesus, I want Your lover’s thirst for love of souls to always be satisfied, that I be able to help You save souls, and that all hearts love and console You…) 4) Apud Deum misericordia et copiosa redemptio! With God there is mercy and abundant redemption! My redemption can be sufficient to save a thousand worlds like earth. My beloved child, I am Mercy in life and in death. I am a loving Father for he who loves Me, and a strict Judge for he who refuses Me a stroke of love… Think only of Me; telling yourself: Now I must concern myself in the affairs of My Father who is in Heaven. I shall show you My power and Who is He who leads you. Your misery is great, but My Mercy is infinite.

YOU ARE MY FAMILY CL-165
22-Dec-95 Mary

1) (For the Prayer Group, given before Christmas. Final copy from the 4th notebook, newly dated January 24, 1996.) 2) Beloved little daughter, I want to point out to everyone the short roads, the ones that allow you to reach the degree of love that is assigned by the Divine kindness and allow you to arrive with great swiftness. The short roads are: giving oneself up to God; continued trust; and full acceptance of God’s Will. 3) You will be true children of Mine, My chosen ones, if you make a permanent intention with perseverance in regard to these three aims. This intention of course would not be possible without a special grace. I assure you that I Myself will ask the Almighty for it, if you decide on such a course. 4) Think a little. When Jesus was young, I wanted to see Him older; and when He was older, I wanted to again see Him younger. In such manner, naturally, I would have wanted to see Him because of My maternal fondness. Certainly I could not change His stature. Thus, if He was nurtured by Me, it was because I must be your worthy Mother, among other motives… today the Queen of Heaven, Mother of our adored God, is the One who thinks about you. 5) You are my family that I nourish and make grow more each time. Therefore, trust me, allow yourselves to be nourished with everything that I deem

necessary. You should know that I am more interested in your spiritual nurturing than you are. Know that if I want, I can make you grow faster than you think, and I want to do it. 6) In contrast to the impossibility of My making Jesus grow at will, by Divine virtue and with His Will, I can accelerate the growing process of My children in the Divine love. 7) Beloved dear daughter, what strength God uses for so many suppressed desires and sacrifices for His Love! Today My Son wants to give to this group of My beloved ones a particular sign of predilection, precisely now on Christmas Eve. 8) Therefore, ask for the rosaries that are usually utilize to pray and they will receive a special blessing. Wait with them this weekend. Upon receiving them again, I ask you to say three times the Glory to the Blessed Trinity, as an act of thanks. Pray like you did tonight: with your heart. 9) Come closer to the Divine Heart of My Son and ask Him for you to burn in this fire of infinite Love. Persevere in your life of prayer. My children, your thinking and your life must be a permanent prayer of praise, gratitude, and forgiveness. 10) You are not fulfilling what My Son asked you to do last February - the three Creeds (see the first book, the "Springs of Mercy"). Why are you not consistent? Some of you are still in the world, still in the material. How many hours have you spent thinking about your expenses, and how many hours do you pray? Do you really believe that if you pray less and work more, your economical problems will get better? 11) I will never ask you to stop working. I am familiar with your hardships, but if you start praying more often, the moment will come in which your praying will be like the most important part of your work. You will find that your mind and your heart do not stop speaking with God and with your Mother. 12) Do not absorb your children’s life; let them have their own lives, but with an example of responsibility, of a positive change in their lives, teaching them the power of prayer… 13) Look for understanding between youselves. You are not assimilating the blessings you have as a group. Pray with sincerity between you, without egoism, with charity. If there is no love and charity between you, praying, fasting, and receiving Holy Communion are of no value. Put yourself in the other person’s situation before judging. 14) I am going to reveal something to you. You have lost the happiness of receiving a very special grace, granted to only a few persons, because you did not continue living the messages. But we have a God of Love, and prayer and
MESSAGES 81

love are the weapons that allow Him to bring down His just arms. 15) Make up for lost time, do not allow for the graces destined for you to fall. Your Mother begs you. You must come together more, not always physically but spiritually. God is good, He is Light and He illuminates His loved ones without being aware of their faults. The next time you get together, you will all ask for forgiveness; you will pray like today, asking God to accept atonement for the offenses against this family, which We bring together with so much love. 16) You have been able to prove it. We have returned to get you together so that you will know that you must grow together like true brothers of Jesus. 17) In this group there is no room for a Judas; there must not be a traitor. This group must transmit the joy of loving and living in the harmony of those who are true disciples of God.

You already know that last night I hardly slept, but it was so beautiful speaking to You, my Lord… 22) Visit me again when You wish, please. I am here waiting for You, ready to do what You ask. That is why I am Your slave, Your servant.

My beloved One: Christmas ended a short time ago, it has been less than a month that the new year began, and with it surely everyone has renewed the desire to be a better person. I myself feel emptiness as if in the center of my life, that is an ardent fire and love near You, there were an emptiness, an unfilled space, (I do not know if this word exists and is correct) something that waits for something from You. You see what I cannot see; You know what I will never be able to see. What do You see in me? What does that something that waits for You mean? 19) My God, I adore You in the depths of my soul and in the infinite Light of Your Being! All Your desires are gentle for those who love You. What You express to me gives my soul a profound peace, and at the same time the intense desire to do what pleases You, and not according to my will but Yours. Help me, my beloved; always rest my hand on Yours, my gaze on Your Divine Light, and my love on You! 20) My beloved Lord, I do not feel well at all, but I offer it all to You. I offer myself and blessed be what You will send me. If the moment for You to take me is approaching, Your will be done. I only ask You to give a very special blessing to my loved ones so that they will find joy in Your Love, and to everyone who reads these – Your messages. 21) Now at this precise moment, my knee hurts a lot; the pressure on my chest has stopped. My feet and my right side hurt a lot. I sound like a whiner; You know that I am not, but You want me to write down all of this, and even though I do not understand why, I obey lovingly. I offer everything to You to console

the Prayer Group, after Christmas.) My dear child, the Lord’s presence here, during these hours near all these objects and rosaries that usually accompany them, has made it possible for us to be present in this place, which receives us with love… In the company of my Son and Lord, of Joseph, your holy patronesses, and of the Angels, we have been in several parts of the world, for this solemn blessing. 3) You will have the grace to discover – as you pray with them – the natural gifts that God’s Holy Spirit will grant each one of you. 4) Today Jesus blesses all the homes that await Him but, in a manner incomprehensible to you, He lavishes His graces to all who will carry these rosaries. Do not worry; all the pious objects in this house have been blessed. Thank you for your faith, My children. 5) The more you ask of us, the more it pleases us, because whoever doubts does not honor us and remains stained… The tribulation has arrived at the commencement of its summit. That is why, My children, you are in need of blessings to help you maintain your faith alive. When you weaken, you must grasp these rosaries and pray with them. Retire into yourselves and meditate on its mysteries… Investigate well before giving in to easy seductions. Yes, it is the hour of Mercy, the decades of love, not of punishment. It is the hour of our triumph; the triumph of Jesus, of His Mother, of you, My chosen ones. 6) Eucharistic Jesus has wanted to be present. He has sent one of my children to bless the rosaries, and once again He presents you with the flowers of Paradise. Distribute a little piece to each one. I can no longer address myself to the group; you do it. Pride hurts me so much… My humility has never been able to comprehend it. 7) Feel my love; let yourselves be driven by it and become infected with the purpose of my purity.

that spirit, love of My Passion. Here is your Teacher, always be a good student. Every delight is found next to My Heart, and whoever comes near it, will remain captive in My Love. 2) Not every creature of Mine is chosen to speak of this delight, of this love. Actually, I point out with fire the ones that I have selected beforehand and I love them, love them so much, because among them are the ones that alleviate My ardent thirst. 3) True love must be expanded and not repressed within; its Divine nature compels whoever possesses this love to diffuse it and this in perfect similarity to the Father who, loving infinitely, desires infinitely that His Love be known. 4) I have taken you and bound you to My Will, and I have conferred in you the dignity that belongs to you, My child, to you, brother, to you, My true lover. I have seen that My work bears fruit, that is why I want to embellish it this day in which you exalt and exult for Me. Yes, exalt Who created you, and exult for Him Who redeemed and loved you. My child, how much tenderness in your Father’s Heart on this night of love, always so much tenderness, but I confess that especially this day I have waited anxiously to give you My Love. It is so lovely to be here in this place reserved for our encounters! It consoles Me so much when you repeat that you love Me. Tell Me many times! Console this thirst of love that flows out of My Heart like an abundant river in search of watersheds to nourish its existence! 5) You always want Me to tell you about Myself and I do it reminding you of what can help you. My Love is manifested like this on earth and only like this will you be able to know Me. I am the essence, the truth, the perfect paternity that has adopted you in a Divine way, and that has nothing to do with the human. Your Father is greater than what you can imagine. 6) My Father begot Me, I have made everyone My brother and I repose in you in order to love My Father, renewing Myself in those who want. You are placed between Him and Me, but you do not appear because it is I who must appear. 7) My affiliation is the one that must be exalted and known. When I dwell, I communicate My Light; that is why I am the One who appears before My Father and why He exalts Me. When I impute to you My merits and I justify you before Him; it is also I the One who appears and, in this, He is pleased. The grace gives you the appearance that is acceptable to

the Father because in it He sees Me. 8) Thus I can tell you about Me and you comprehend that this is the best thing that has happened in the world because nothing is greater than what is made liken to Me. 9) My loved one, if you speak of Me it is because I move you and I live in you. So, remain in peace and My Will will be fulfilled. I have delivered you from Satan’s dominion; I have the right and pleasure to renew Myself in you. 10) Loving soul, it is I who lights and grants the fire of love that in the Word of the Holy Trinity is diffused in you. I have had to put in effect a slow persuasion to bring you into My arms, but now that you are in them, you will not leave Me because more and more I vigorously impart to you My Will of unity. 11) I am Love, you the small love; I am fire, you My kindling that I must burn. I am honey, you the cup that must hold it; I am meekness, you the channel in which I have put Myself. The origin of My life is Jesus: Me. 12) The movement of Jesus in you is given by the Father. You make a circle around the three of Us and you happily revolve embraced in continuous attraction to Us. Always revolve like that; even more rapidly, until We and you shall be one.

beginning has in itself inevitable hardships. Man is born amid the mother’s labor pains; grain sprouts after the seed has been destroyed; water surges after having fought against the force that oppresses it; fire burns when it conquers the coldness that it attacks; and so on. But the soul that wants to love God must, like the fire, the water, the grain, and his own birth, conquer the obstacles that he encounters; that is, he must do away with what impedes his will to be united with My Will. And here is how I work in My loved ones: 2) I open their intelligence with the supernatural Light, then instill the love that is lacking in order to bring down the obstacles that I want overpowered. 3) Whoever accepts the Light now cannot tell himself that he is about to receive the love, but whoever foolishly judges impossible what I propose, cannot triumph. That is why I withdraw the Light, without having infused the grace of Love. 4) With joy you tell Me I am the Light, the Love. I am, but I want you and all My loved ones to also be light and love. They do not follow Me because they remain in the dark and in the cold. MESSAGES 83

I make Myself known continuously and I gladly give what is Mine… I love and I live but who tries to see how I guide and infuse life in order to arrive at the ultimate end, that is, to love Me eternally? Few are aware of My work. Poor creatures of Mine, how you live in darkness, rather, blinded! 6) (Lord, have pity on me, I ask for mercy.) 7) If through you I lavish love and mercy, what will I not do with you, daughter? (I feel like I am about to explode with the love that inundates me.) 8) To the souls that do My Will, I give the power to repel the assaults of the infernal enemy. Sometimes he disguises himself, but you can recognize him through the effects that his instigation produces: neither calmness, nor peace, and an uncontrolled sense of rebellion are sure symptoms of snares and omens – in case of consent – of traps and then of chains. 9) He who lives in My Will has in himself pure knowledge of such snares and cannot fail if, ignoring all setbacks, deposits his soul in My Divinity… 10) Prepare yourself, My child, the world will have to hear much from you… I know you have only miseries and weaknesses but I am purification of fire and I will embrace you in the flames of My Heart, destroying you… remain in My Love and completely surrendered to My Will.

morning you have reviewed My Passion, the love story written with My Blood. You write stories with ink, but I have written Mine with My Blood. It was written: He has saved others and He cannot save Himself. If He is King, let Him come down from the Cross. 2) I did not come down from the Cross because I had not come to save Myself, but rather you. Then it was necessary to remain on the Cross, and I am still there and I will continue to be. 3) My little one, you torment yourself by looking for your sins, but when one loves, one no longer sins. Your greatest sin is not believing in My great Love for you. 4) (I wonder when the Kingdom of the Great Mercy that He tells me about will begin.) 5) Since eight years ago. Tell everyone that the greatest forgiveness of all sins has already begun, the drawing of all souls to Me, soon to forgive all in exchange for a heartbeat of love. For those that know of My desire, the Kingdom of the Great Mercy has already begun, and for the world, when it has begun to read the Springs of Mercy. 84 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

one single glass of water given to someone who thirsts is not without recompense, My child, can you imagine what I want to give you as a reward for the work you are doing for Me? I will imprint on you My image so that everyone will know that you are Mine. (I include this because the Lord demands that I do.) First I have saved you, then I have made you My spouse. I have made you owner of My Heart, and now I fill you with the gentleness of My Love. Do you think it is not sufficient? 7) The face that I promised that you would contemplate is now in all its splendor in your soul. Do you see, My little one, how the souls do not receive well the cross of tribulations? But they do not know how much it pains Me to see all humanity suffer like that. I would shed all My Blood to save your tears. I would like to take upon Myself the burden of human sorrow, and carry the weight by Myself, like I did then. 8) With all that, if one could see the future glory and the importance assigned to the sorrow here below, the same souls would ask Me to send them suffering and crosses. I want to take the souls to My Father’s Kingdom and because of that I clothe them with contrition. But even among the consecrated souls, they are few, the ones that penetrate this mystery of Love. 9) I am Love. The Love that always wants to give and give, but who understands Me? The souls who understand Me are few. 10) I want you to become withdrawn even more so on some days. Do not make plans for Fridays; I have My own plans. Arrange everything for your reading and prayers. Your pains will increase; I must save religious souls. We will console each other and together make acts of reparation.

place great importance on the sustenance of their children, and if they see that one of them lacks stimulus, following the impulse of their hearts, they want to stimulate that particular child with different morsels… I do the same, following the impulse of My heart full of love for you. 2) But it is a question of spiritual nourishment, of unknown meals, which contain the spiritual food. This is the first difficulty that they encounter; they do not recognize the nourishment they need. I am eager for each one of you to accept nourishment with the substances that are more necessary. Thus, if a child of Mine has need to know more of his nothingness, My heart provides him proofs of human impotence. If perhaps he has need to know the Divinity better, I

am ready to give light to his dark mind. If someone else must grow stronger in the faith, I am quick to allow him to enter into consideration of the truths revealed to the Church. If some child finds himself in difficulties because he knows the Divine nourishment and wants to feed himself with it, but he is not able to have it because he is mentally distant from it, then I will take care to bring his plate closer, or if the case may be, of having him extend his hand so that he can take by himself what he already sees. 3) For that reason, believe that everything is offered to you as a means of sanctification and nothing must be considered as pastime or loss of energy. The spiritual food that I tell you about is all seasoned with God’s Will, and more so, this is the true substance, the true nourishment of the soul, and the rest is the necessary human complements for you to be able to capture this nourishment. Assimilate this substance and you will also become strong. I have already told you: I continue doing spontaneously what I physically did for Jesus at Nazareth, so that this role as Mother will be fulfilled in God’s Holy Will. 4) I cannot remain inactive while one of My beloved children does not definitively enter in My house. I am his aiding Mother; I want and must help so that everyone will be fortified in spirit up to the full height that must be reached because of the Love My Son has for all. 5) O privileged children, when you see Me in Heaven I shall tell you all that My motherly heart cannot, for your own good, tell you now! 6) In the meantime, assure Me of your affection, by everyone saying together the first part of My Prayer and three "Glory Be to the Father…" to the Blessed Trinity in gratitude for having given you a Mother who loves you intensely.

I do, will lose himself. He who falls in My arms, will find infinitely more than what he desired. 3) How much We are grateful and comforted by today’s Eucharistic Ceremony!… If you only knew the number of celestial beings who were present… Give Me freedom to work in you; I long for the days that we spend praying together…

You will think of Me, that I sacrificed Myself without you asking Me. And since for Me there was nothing outside of the sacrifice, so will it be for you if you truly sacrifice yourself, because beyond your surrender there will be glory in Heaven and Divine Love incomparably beautiful.

Look at Me, hanging on the Cross. Do you think that I have not deserved from man a greater love than the love which they have who deem themselves to be My subjects? I have liquidated all former pacts that I had contracted with man. I have made him in My image in the divine filiation. I have destroyed Myself in torments so that all understand that I love as a Creator, which is infinitely. 2) Ungrateful ones! You would like to limit My right to love you. But, why do you want to do such a thing? Perhaps you think that you do well. In fact, you disguise the truth because you have no knowledge, and I no longer communicate with them upon finding their intelligence not sufficiently submitted to My judgment. 3) During these days My suffering has increased, because My children pay homage to the world instead of embracing with love the arrival of a new year… Poor humanity that runs towards its destruction! 4) Do you know what the purpose is in granting you so many graces? I wish to make of your heart a small altar in which the fire of My Love will burn continuously. That is why I want it to be purified. 5) This heart of Mine never denies forgiveness to a soul who humbles itself and understand, My child, above all if the soul asks with real trust.

Children in arms will proclaim His Name. The new terrestrial Jerusalem will be the beginning of the celestial one. 3) Our Lord wants acts of charity. Charity is that flower of Paradise brought forth from the Heart of the Heavenly Father when He gave the world His only Son. The Word was made flesh; the purity of a soul is in relation with its charity. 4) Prayer and the offering of a victim are most pleasing to God. But they are few… the souls are few. 5) When you pray the fourth Sorrowful Mystery, Jesus carries the Cross on the way to Calvary, pause and reflect: The Cross! Oh, the world today makes the Cross so heavy for poor Jesus! Today when you get up to pray, ask like Peter asked: Master, save us that we are perishing… 6) Before the Lord embraces the world with the fire of His wrath, it is necessary for good men to light the fire of love in the hearts of their brothers. That is why it is urgent to instruct all brothers. It is a responsibility that concerns every soul, and this message must recruit everyone. It is the hour of the great battle. He who has a sword, unsheathe it. This message is for everyone and must be announced from the pulpits. The dead speak. The armies in Heaven are already prepared to do battle and ready to respond to the magnificent cry: Who is like God? 7) Sodom, Gomorrah, Hiroshima, Croatia… The souls will be lifted up like the dust in the greatest snowstorms, and dropped from the Face of God into eternal fire. Do not hide the Voice of God in a notebook, nor your talents under cover. On the contrary, proclaim to all people the Creator’s Love for His creature… Teach your brothers. No one is excused from this obligation. Time is serious; the danger is imminent. Only Love can save the world! 8) The Holy Virgin is the one who still holds back the “punishment.” If for one single moment the Virgin would stop interceding with Her chosen ones, the world would end. Do you know what kind of Mother Mary is?

gossip and intrigue, and at other times, like in this case, appropriating themselves gifts that were not granted to them – not because the Lord in His infinite Mercy and Goodness did not want to give them these gifts – but because they did not deserve them or because they dropped the graces that in a given moment were given to them. 2) In the midst of this sorrow of seeing you divided, thank God you were able to realize it in time so that you could succeed in proving how things and situations that were not real had been fabricated. 3) I admit, it was not an easy task for my children to manage in recognizing that this did not come from Heaven… Where there is war, division, lack of peace, and arrogance, we cannot be encouraging this discord. There had to be many signs, why were you not alert? Can you not see that the evil one lies in wait for the chosen groups? 4) I want you to prepare everything with time; organize the details for the arrival of My son. This visit will be very beneficial for the Church in Bolivia… There will be mishaps, but do not be discouraged, your Mother will be arranging things (future arrival of Fr. Gobbi).

Much has already been done, truly, but we still must do more. I will never be sorry for having chosen you. 2) One day when under torture, Paul asked Me to convert those who were opposed to Me, just like he had been. I promised him that I would listen to him,

so that in Heaven he would have many of his companions. Then I told him that you, among others, would be chosen and brought to Me from the mire. You have resisted Me for a long time, but I have loved you longer. With tenacity My Love has fought and defeated you. You have opposed Me in many ways and have turned back. 3) And because of love for you and Paul, I have finally removed your misery, your vices, your impurities. And finally, you have recognized Me because I have made you see love; I have made you see My Glory. 4) I will make you suitable because you know that you are not; I will make you wise because you admit that you are dull; I will warm you because you really believe that you are ice…

She is the smallest like the mustard seed of the parable and, nevertheless, She is first after Me. She transmits to you graces and you cannot come to Me but through Her. Your souls are full of misery and sin, but I resurrect you through the Mother of the Church, through My Mother….

daughter, if the world would only understand how important and necessary are the apparitions of My Mother… Just like there is only one ruler in each country and the others are subjects, there is one sovereign in the universe. And in the same manner that a ruler on earth appears accompanied by his wife so that the people will see not only the rigor of the law but also the love and the mercy, so does the Lord of the universe in order that His subjects will not die of fright upon seeing only His Justice. 2) That is why, when My Mother speaks to you, you hear the words of My Mercy in order that you repent, convert, and stop sinning. I, the Lord of the universe, do not deny anyone My Mercy, even if that person lives in the most remote place of My Empire. I know everyone; I know each secret in your heart. Then, do not be surprised that people hear words of mercy. In truth I tell you: if you do not convert, you will feel the rigor of justice. 3) My Mother speaks with people in many places, in the language with which you say your prayers. She speaks to all because the Good News of Her Son is for everyone. Men are filled with love a lot easier if they see that She looks like them. That is why She appears with the physical characteristics of each country where She presents Herself. 4) When you think about Her, I want you to remember that not only is She the intercessor of all graces, not only the Queen gifted with all power, but that at the same time She is the small child of Nazareth, young, beautiful, humble, full of piety, of love, helpful. That humility continues growing incessantly by the power of My Father, and that is what is most sig-

My child, I want to talk to you one more time about the atonement that I want you to make. You ask Me how you should make that atonement - with faith and perseverance. If at any moment you feel tired or you are worried or you feel unconcerned, direct your eyes to the Cross or to the Tabernacle. Each one should understand that people live only by My Will and by My Love. I am Love and the fruit of My Love is peace and happiness… 2) I wish to gift the world with the fruits of My Love: peace and happiness. If you do not do penance, the whole world will go to ruin because of sin. War is not only the punishment for hate among nations, but also the punishment for the sins of humanity. 3) You ask how long you should do penance? Until the end of time, the sins committed by this humanity are too many and too great. The devil does not like atonement and fasting, prayer, sacrifices: he detests them. But when you do them, you experience the saving effect of their practice. I will give your souls fortitude, perseverance, valor, and happiness. 4) I repeat, there are many sins that I cannot tolerate: vanity, immorality, the tongue, and many religious who are so only because of their habit, since in their spirit they are not even close. 5) I redeemed the world with suffering and praying during the night. Atonement is a change of life, of attitudes. Those that have cursed before should bless now; the ones who have stolen, must make restitution; those who hate, must love; those who have served their body, must serve their soul; and the ones who have ignored My commandments, must keep them from now on. If not, there is no true conversion. I would like to see written on the door of each convent and of each family who believes: “Atonement and Sacrifice.” Tell this to everyone. Just by seeing a small sign, each member of
MESSAGES 87

that community or family will be making small and big sacrifices. If the spirit of atonement flourishes in their souls, I shall have mercy on Bolivia and the world. 6) In the meantime, instruct, teach… Speak out; do something; do not be afraid. God is with you, if you are with God. Love has no room for fear. Therefore, preaching love is not enough to be charitable, one must make this love lively, active. One may be able to resist the word, but not the example that is always contagious. Wage war on your own egotism, on your own individual comfort. Know how to divide the loaf of bread in two, even if it is small and it is only one. Open generously your arms to your brother, and there are so many needy brothers… It is not difficult for any soul of good will, to understand that coming back to God can save them from their downfall. 7) Each one waits that the other may act and, thus, no one does anything. But the hour is serious. Begin, all of you, in the family, in the community, in the parish, in the associations. Do not think about excursions, recreation, shows. On the contrary, look for the poor, the abandoned… Speak, help, encourage, make haste. Soon the time will come when it can be said: Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord, and one will be envious of their fate. Reading these things will shock many but do you think that the children are hidden from the sorrow and suffering of the Father? 8) Make your brothers see the true human face of Christ, the Ecce Homo. My face that should be presented to all brothers, the one with the look fixed toward Heaven, nailed to the Cross, that implores: “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” There I am in My infinite Love and in My immense sorrow. Do not be content with showing Christ resurrected, full of joy and glory. To get to the moment of My Resurrection you must first nail yourselves to that Cross, and this humanity refuses to do this.

not distinguish if it is a nard or a white lily, and our Lord says:) My daughter, I entrust to you My preferred vineyard, living and non-living. Look, count, if you can, all the souls of My preferred vineyard who, like Me, know that there is no greater love than to give your own life for those that are loved. 3) Life for life! Love for love! These sighs from your soul could not help but be heard. There is nothing left for you to do, but love the souls of My priests, like I love them, I, eternal Priest and Mediator beside the Father. Remain in My Love.

Love of My sorrows, begin, starting today, to receive as spiritual brothers all the priests from all over the world, in order for them to conserve immaculate their lily Ecumenism! Suffer for them, pray, sacrifice yourself … chosen fruit and set aside to serve at the table of the invited ones, delicate Holocaust and pleasing to God and to Me. 2) Look: (I see a big park, with beautiful trees, and parading through the center, through a rocky road with rocks like of gold, a multitude of priests of all races with different ecclesiastical dress; carrying a flower in their hands, I can 88 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

(I was thinking about how these Messages would be received, in these times of so much materialism and apostasy that we encounter…) 2) They will be received like a beam of light and a beating of My Heart; they will be immune to criticism and bad commentaries. They will be a new and recent revelation of My immutable Love for man, like a call to all to return to My Heart that languished in Love. These things I have already said at different times, with distinct words, in different languages, and to different chosen ones. Now it is your turn: write all of this, My beloved daughter; write it. It is a new promise that I make today, on this feast day of the conversion of St. Paul. 3) Take upon yourself My yoke, that is, the sins of the priestly souls, and help Me carry it. In Gethsemane and at Calvary, then and until the end of time, My burden was and will be that of all humanity. From it, I shall give you only a minimum part, the one from this category and the one of your loved ones, like you asked, of the persons that you will meet in the course of your life, but especially for the priestly souls. You are the one who has desired it, and your offering has filled My Heart with much happiness. I never would have asked it of you, for I always respect the natural gift that I have made to My children. Together, carrying this burden, let us climb the Mount of Moriah or go to Golgotha. It is necessary that we be wrapped in darkness if we want them to be the light of the world. It is necessary that we suffer hunger and thirst if we want them to be abundant and, in finishing, it is necessary that we die if we want them to live and if we want to see them cloaked in innocence, we must accept seeing ourselves cloaked in mire and disgrace. Let us together climb this Mount. Alone you will not be able to, you are much too weak; I shall help you. 4) This is how I have always done it with generous

souls. I take them in My arms, like a mother carrying her child. But it is necessary that they know that together we have suffered for them. 5) Go out to the garden, gather the smallest blades of grass and offer them for your greatest intentions, for your life on earth is made of very small things. Those blades will turn to gold. I make with the smallest things, the largest things and, the smaller they are, the bigger I make them. 6) See that copies of these Messages reach as many priests as possible. A priestly heart needs these experiences to become rich. With the Sacrament of Penance, they will know how to abundantly distribute the seed to the hungry, remembering the new Mercy that I want to adopt for this new generation. We are in the dawn of a new Resurrection; put in motion the powers of the Church! Do not worry; what you do not understand, the priests will. 7) The weeds have grown in the gardens of the Church, but since the grain is tall, the hour has come to pull out the bad weeds. At night and without anyone knowing it, the enemy has planted it in My fields. But, little by little, the world is waking up… A new dawn arises over the world, and it is like a new day coming forth. NEVER ACCEPT A WORD AGAINST THIS POPE, NOT EVEN IF IT WERE FROM HIS BELOVED ONES, BECAUSE I LOVE HIM WITH A VERY PARTICULAR LOVE. He is the innocent victim for world peace, universal mediator, together with Me, between God and men.

LOVE IS NOT IN THE BOOKS, BUT IN THE HEART CL-181
25-Jan-96 Jesus

1) Just as spring water, always clear and fresh, flows out of an open rock in the mountains, in like manner from My ever open Heart flows My Love for all mankind. Nevertheless, I have need of My children’s love… Just as a starving person has need of bread, and a thirsty one has need of water, I have need of Love. 2) The modern world is My Passion renewed. Even if all My priests were to abandon Me like My disciples abandoned Me and I remained alone with only one of them as I remained with only John at Golgotha, I shall renew the world. 3) I am letting Peter’s boat sink and then I will pull it out unscathed. My theologians and Teachers of the Law are the ones who speculate in the books in order to find the secular truths. But Love is not found in the pages of the books, and not even Faith. You have lost Love and, with Love, also the Faith, and now, you, like the ancient Teachers of Jerusalem, attempt to convince the people. One must accept the mysteries and, as such, live them. Faith is a gift from God

that needs to be developed and increased with Love. The theologian searches for Love between the pages of the book; but the mystical soul, My spouse, finds it planted in her heart as well as the nails that were driven into My Flesh. 4) The renovation will be like a new creation and, then, many will believe in Me. Out of so much evil, I will manifest so much good. 5) Now you moan like a mother in the pain of birth. The whole Church, the Pope, the people of God cry and are sadden before so much sorrow, so much disorder that weighs upon all mankind. But when the new man will be born, when the world will have been renewed in its sorrow and in its grief, then his cry will turn into great joy. This will be the new day, the new age that finally will substitute hate for love and men will truly become brothers among themselves and in My Name. 6) Do not oppress God’s Word nor keep it from being known, because His Word is eternal, like eternal is His Being. Nothing has changed in Me. I am Mercy, Forgiveness, and Love. The Good Shepherd watches over His flock and His sheep will hear His Voice, and it will become one sheepfold under one Shepherd. Time does not count; what counts is eternity. When everything seems lost, that is when everything is won. Do not be afraid, My little flock; My name is Redeemer and Savior. 7) Like My Apostles, after having suffered so much for Me, were messengers of the good news, likewise this generation, that suffers and is anguished, will be the fertile seed of a new life that is being prepared for the world. 8) Bear the heavy burden of each other. Upon the sorrows that at this moment afflict the Church, sorrows caused by the defection of consecrated souls, spread, My child, the compassionate veil of your tears, and pour over My feet, like Magdalene did, the perfume of your prayers so that many sins can be forgiven. 9) The temptations against the virtue of purity are always very strong, and without any special grace, it is difficult for the soul to resist. This is why the confessors must be merciful with these souls, and help them in every way to rise up with much confidence in Me, Who is able to and wants to readmit them to the celestial banquet. 10) My Pope is the Apostle of the people. If only his word were to be heard… I shall send the Holy Spirit to renew the face of the earth, and it will be like a second Pentecost. Have you seen the Heart whose beams touched the earth? Well, that is how it will be. From My Heart will depart the great light to illuminate all people who lie in the shadow of sin and MESSAGES 89

death. 11) The Church in triumph: The new seed is here. This means to set in motion all the powers of the Church.

THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE CL-182
1)

25-Jan-96

Jesus

These are the times in which charity has turned cold in the world. It is also time to renew everything and, especially, My Church. 2) My daughter, so loved, My beloved secretary… do you see how much I have prepared you so that now you can work with your Lord? 3) My little one, we must also now finish our Crusade of Love. It has been 15 days of complete rapport, of an effusion between you and your God. You have given Me all the hours that I have wanted. This is to show your brothers and everyone else who would have had any doubt. More than a hundred Messages and not condensed but on the contrary being very descriptive, they will show in the diverse topics covered that no human intelligence is capable of achieving this in the time that we did… Thank you, little one, I know that you did it with all your love and for My Glory! 4) Beloved one, I want you to reread and study, analyze, meditate on the Messages, and then live them. Start with the first notebook of this Crusade of Love. You have now been able to perceive that you think, analyze, and respond with a great deal of facility. Take advantage of this gift, My child; pay special attention to certain messages. Your suffering, how I love your suffering! Offer it each hour for someone different, for a person, a group, a community, a nation… especially for priests and members of a religious order. Pray for celibacy in the Church, little one, because a divided heart is not for Jesus. 5) The rewards for your meekness, obedience, and humility will be innumerable. But the main reward will be My Love that will light yours like a burning coal. When you finish reading and analyzing these hundred messages, My Kingdom will be close to you. For that reason, hasten to get them to prayer groups, people who are able to appreciate them. 6) This is a true Light that inundates your soul. I cannot deny you this Light, because having asked you for great things, I must now bear witness in this way, that I am the author of these Messages. This knowledge of “Myself” no one can give you, neither the books nor the theologians, but only He who said: “Let there be Light,” and the Light appeared. This knowledge is contemplation infused with the grace of God. Infused contemplation is that ray of Divine
90 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

Light that penetrates the soul and makes it see and know God for a moment such as He is. 7) “Voice of the one who clamors in the desert: make straight the paths of the Lord!” The manuscript is ready; it will be the Voice that will summon the assembly. The messages have arrived at the port. The messages of salvation are entrusted to the humble and the poor, the imprisoned and the sick. These ones are always My preference, not those who have the means to conquer; but rather for those who, like Me on earth, live in poverty and in anguish. To the shepherds I confided the Message of announcing the Good News, and to the fishermen, the founding of the Church. To you I entrust the copies (not book, the copies) of this manuscript, with the monies from the second book you will get the photocopies. Start with a few; get them to the jails, the hospitals, to all the needy, religious or not. Do not keep My Messages of Love and Forgiveness locked up in a drawer. Speak out; act… I could make My Messages reach the most remote places of the world and My Angels would be My messengers, like they did so many times with the first books… but I want your cooperation. 8) Remember: Divine Intimacy because to speak to the Angels and My chosen ones, I do not use words. But to speak to the children of man, the Word was made flesh. 9) My priests, upon reading these pages, will strike their chests, and like Longinus will say: “Truly, this is the Son of God.” 10) I shall manifest My power and you will see the multitudes, thirsty for peace and love, sitting by Jacob’s well, asking for a drink from that water that springs to eternal life. “Give Me souls and take the rest.” 11) It is appropriate that this manuscript, which they will call “THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE”, will end with the message that follows. 12) Now, tell your husband that I bless him, and thank him for his patience and understanding. Until later, My little one… My little and beloved secretary.

I WANT KNOWN EVERYTHING I SAY CL-183

25-Jan-96

Jesus

The hour has come for My spirit to go to the four corners of the world, and I will call all men to Me. This Pentecost is so important! It is also time for “The Great Crusade of Love” to be known by all. One hundred and fifty copies will be enough; everything else will take its course… 2) It is not true that today one can no longer live in perfect poverty, submission, and obedience. The world needs this great and spectacular contrast. 3) Do not allow yourselves to be deceived or influ-

enced by the evil spirit, who, through all means, tries to destroy in men all the holy and Divine inspirations, distancing them from all that is good. A poor, humble, and obedient man is an unconquerable force. 4) To live in perfect poverty in a world crazed with pleasures and luxury, is the passion of the Cross, and the passion of the Cross is always present. To follow Christ and Christ crucified is for all eternity. 5) There are so many fanatics who die protesting or of hunger or on fire to affirm their own ideas. Only I, Christ, no longer find in the world fanatics or true followers of My doctrine and My Cross. 6) When I possess a soul in its entirety, I stir it in all directions just as I make the wind blow and like I agitate the waters of the sea. Then that soul stirs unconsciously, speaks, acts, but it is not the soul that moves, speaks, and acts: I am the One who leads it, and it fulfills My Will in everything, since the power of Love has fused all wills in one, and the weakest one obeys the strongest. 7) “O God, You are My strength!” Remember it. Never will a supplication nor a tear by a soul be rejected by Me. I Am the Good Shepherd that gathers the flock around Himself. 8) The Mystical Body of Christ must be saved… I want to purify My Church and renew this Spouse, lover of My Heart. I want all My priests to wear the white vestment of the nuptials. 9) Married men, continue to be holy in your marital state because if priests are needed around the world, I shall know how to promote true lovers of a poor and pure Christ. The more methodical this purification will be, many more will be the vocations to the priesthood. Young men want to live a true and sincere life. Some show a great lack of faith in Me when they feel the desire to want to combine the conjugal life and the priesthood. You cannot serve two masters. I have said that I want to cleanse My Church, to take away all the aging elements so that it can acquire again its initial vigor and youthfulness. 10) The time has come for the deluge of My graces to flow, more impetuous than the rush of the greatest waterfalls, from My Heart over all souls. I can no longer delay the giving because men are hungry for love and forgiveness. 11) I want known everything I tell you. My Church is being directly swayed by so many doubts, so many mistaken beliefs. My followers are the ones who want to throw out the Truth and Faith. Do you think My priests have any time to pass with Me? 12) I come to you, not to correct your defects, but rather for an interchange of love, to open My Heart to you like to a devoted lover who knows how to live

only for her beloved. Her thoughts follow him; she looks for his love; her anxieties and her problems overwhelm him. I come like a friend, a brother, a spouse. I have given you great signs of faith, but you have also given them to Me. It is difficult for a human being to believe everything that you have believed up to now. Oh, Faith! To whom shall I turn to on earth for a word of comfort? All of this merits a reward, and I, pious Jesus, will not fail to give it to you. I want to show you My Human Heart in all its sensitiveness. 13) (I have resisted writing and the Lord insists that I do so…) 14) Just as you manifest Me to the world, I, also, shall manifest you. I have created you to My image and likeness, through the sorrows, contradictions, and pains. When I told you that I would imprint My Image on you, I meant the Image of the God of Love, and I have not promised to free you of all guilt, of all blemishes, but rather to make you perfect in Love. Yes! I have not promised to make you like the angels on earth, but like the angels in Heaven. 15) Take heed, My children. It is the hour of darkness. Satan, jealous, tries to impede the publication of My messages, but have confidence. It is necessary that what is human mix with the Divine. When I was nailed to the Cross, how many were there who believed in Me? All divine labor carries the countersign of the Cross and of the contradictions, this is its seal. Theology wants to imprison Me in a circle, but I am not fashioned to the duration of time. I know that My Messages are in good hands. Oh, men have such a poor idea of their God, including those that spend their life influenced by books! 16) (I ask for forgiveness, book number 2 was not published because of difficulties in printing it.) 17) Do not worry; it is a good sign. 18) (I am in sorrow because the Lord will abandon me when these messages stop.) 19) The instrument serves while in use, then it is put away, but the artist will never forget his brush, or the author his pen. 20) All your words are full of hope, My child, because like My Mother, you have believed everything your God has told you. Would I leave you frustrated? This would not be worthy of a man, much less of your Jesus. Continue believing and waiting, and instill this hope in others. Keep expecting the fulfillment of My promises. Your journey is Love. Do not demand anything else but Love, because the Sanctity of My Father is great. I have loved you with eternal Love, little one, and I do not ask you for anything but love. I have loved you from all eternity. Know to return love for love. I am a jealous and deMESSAGES 91

manding God and I test souls to see if what I receive is pure gold, because I have given Myself wholly. 21) I am going to repeat something for My children: many times I approach them with My Cross and they do not recognize Me. I want them to know that the more miserable and guilty is a soul, so much more right that soul has to My Mercy and My Forgiveness; these are the rights inherited from the prodigal son, the right to the banquet, the nuptial vestment, and the ring. 22) It is time to manifest the anguish in My Heart to the world Do not withdraw from Me. We are in intimate colloquy. I have need to love you. I do, I, your God, your Creator, the Almighty, tell you. I have need of your breath, your warmth, the kiss of the spouse. Perhaps you are surprised and ask Me: How so? I have need of so much love; I have need of that love that is denied Me. That is why it is necessary to redouble love. 23) What God is closer to His child than I? And how come they do not see Me? They do not hear Me? Are you not aware of My presence? I go in silence among you; it is true. But before My presence, waters are agitated and stir up everything; the Heavens move, and hurricanes thunder, and you do not notice that I go through. I go by looking, asking, admonishing, begging. I go by searching for love! 24) You will have to drink with Me drops from the bitter cup of Gethsemane, to taste the ungratefulness of humanity… Since I chose you to be My voice, I must mold, each day, your heart between the Heart of your God and the human heart, My child, to do good and to receive in exchange only ingratitude… My little one, I love you! Your sorrow is great, but, day-by-day, your heart is more like Mine. 25) Whoever has acknowledged Me before men, I, too, shall acknowledge that person before My Father. The Angel of the Apocalypse will one day know how to identify the “Chosen Ones” among all who have known to acknowledge My Name. 26) As you see, I am always in search of love, and love sets no limits on sacrifices and resignations, cer-

tain that a happy day will come, a day of pure joy, when all suffering will be recompensed. 27) I never bring confusion to the soul, but rather peace, happiness, serenity. The day will come when I will reveal you to the world. Some people, little by little, are filling My Church with absurd ignorance! Poverty is preached for everyone else, but comfort for oneself. 28) The flower on the cliff is always fresh; it is the flower of hope. The flower on the cliff is at the mercy of the wind, and weathers the storm. 29) Never displease your God; it is beautiful not to displease your own parents. Speaking of parents, do not worry; I have determined in the best way the course of your mother’s life. 30) It does not matter what this flower is like. It is a fresh flower sprouted on the rock of My Sepulchre: it is the flower of hope, the flower of the Resurrection. Just one soul close to Me, can save the world. 31) Your hands hurt, do they not? Rejoice, they will be channels of grace for the souls who will read the Word of your Lord. Do not be sad, nor be embarrassed; I order you to do it. A secretary has to distinguish herself by her accuracy and loyalty, nothing else. Give your all to this task that I have given you. Forsake yourself… Trust. Have I deceived you before? I will be grateful to you for it. 32) What a gift I have given you and, in the meantime, I cover you with My wings. One must be able to say that you are suffering, physically and morally, for your God. And you know why? It is not easy to deal with certain theologians who delve in everything and want to find signs from the heavens! 33) Then, do you consider Me the absolute Owner of all your possessions, of you entirely?… This, indeed, is happiness for My Heart, because many give Me only the usufruct, but not the ownership of their possessions. Do not fear, it will not always be pain and sorrow, but also great joys. Cochabamba, October 2, 1996

APPENDIX B WHAT IS THE ANE AND ITS MINISTRIES?
e are a lay apostolic movement who have listened to the call of the Lord, and we have decided to place ourselves at His service. We try to carry the Good News of the Gospel to all our sisters and brothers, in order to contribute to establishing the Kingdom of God among men and women. Committed to Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church, we respond to the call of John Paul, II as he insistently declared in his three most often repeated phrases during the course of his pontificate: “Be saints”; “This is the time for the laity”; and “Let us promote the New Evangelization of the world”. We assume responsibility for working with energy and creativity on the New Evangelization, by attempting to utilize effective strategies and methods to call to conversion men and women of our times.

W

Our Goals
To spread among men and women the living presence of our Lord Jesus Christ and to help them to live their faith in accordance with the Gospel, united to Mary in prayer. To establish small church communities “Little Houses of Prayer” where we are formed in prayer and knowledge of the Gospel, within the lines set out by the Magisterium of the Church, attempting to give witness to a life that is consistent with the teachings of Jesus. To promote the spiritual and human growth of those who join the Apostolate, motivating the sacramental life of each one of them and facilitating the study of Sacred Scriptures, documents of the Church, lives of Saints and ANE’s own bibliographical material. Members of ANE have the duty to evangelize each other, and to evangelize and assist and help those most in need, which is nothing more than “evangelizing” through their witness and example.

Lord and to draw near Him by using whatever circumstance they are living through. Support for the Church: Seeking the resources to be able to work together with people who need material help: Parishes, nuns and priests, seminaries, marginal families and in general, those with scant resources. Ministry of Communication: Producing the messages of evangelization intended for wide distribution, whether through radio, television, videos, daily papers, our magazine, the Internet, audio tapes and CD’s. Catechesis: Planning, coordinating and supervising catechetical formation of those working for ANE as well as the contents of the Catechism during the carrying out of evangelization. Penitential Work: Accompanying those sisters and brothers who have suffered the misfortune of temporarily losing their freedom by inviting them to experience liberation of soul through the Lord, by reminding them that there is a reality which is different from that harsh environment that surrounds them and that our true hope must be placed in God.

Our Ministries
“Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, a stranger and you welcomed Me, naked and you clothed Me, ill and you cared for Me, in prison and you visited Me… Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of Mine, you did for Me.” (Mt 25, 34-35. 40) Among those Ministries, the following are the most outstanding: Caring for the Sick: Spiritually assisting the sick and their family members, especially in hospitals and other health centers: a) Helping those sisters and brothers who go before us, to have a “good death”, through prayer and frequent receiving of the Sacraments; b) Consoling and strengthening in God, family members of the sick; c) Encouraging those who are temporarily sick to offer their suffering to the 94 THE GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE

APPENDIX C NOTE FROM THE ANE
he books of “The Great Crusade” make up a collection of volumes, which are already more than 15 in number [in Spanish], and its teachings convey the spirituality of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization (ANE), which is based on Sacred Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The ANE is a Catholic lay movement, which arises in response to the insistent call of John Paul II to all the baptized, to commit themselves to the task of promoting the Good News, that Christ has died and risen again in order to save us from sin. As Catholics that we are, we fully abide by the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, which states the following in regards to the matter of private revelations:

T

Canon 66: “The Christian economy, therefore, since it is the new and definitive Covenant, will never pass away; and no new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Vatican Council II, Dogmatic Constitution ‘Dei Verbum’ 3 AAS 58) Yet even if Revelation is already complete, it has not been made completely explicit; it remains for Christian faith gradually to grasp its full significance over the course of the centuries.” Canon 67: “Throughout the ages, there have been socalled “private” revelations, some of which have been recognized by the authority of the Church. They do not belong, however, to the deposit of faith. It is not their role to improve or complete Christ's definitive Revelation, but to help live more fully by it in a certain period of history. Guided by the Magisterium of the Church, the sensus fidelium knows how to discern and welcome in these revelations whatever constitutes an authentic call of Christ or his saints to the Church. Christian faith cannot accept ‘revelations’ that claim to surpass or correct the Revelation of which Christ is the fulfillment, as is the case in certain non-Christian religions and also in certain recent sects which base themselves on such ‘revelations’.” Catechism of the Catholic Church Canons 66 & 67 You will notice on the inside page of our books the stamp or “IMPRIMATUR” granted by the Bishops of the Catholic Church, of the Latin and Chaldean Rites. Some have been translated into more than eight languages and have been recommended by several bishops who judge that the reading of them will facilitate spiritual growth among faithful Catholics. The first books of the “Great Crusade” series were not printed with “offset” but were distributed by photocopies taken directly from the first original transcriptions. With the passage of time, certain persons –clearly with the best of intentions– collaborated in “a second transcription and formatting of the texts” to photocopy them, given the fact that “the copies of the copies” turned out to be illegible in some cases. Unfortunately, in the process, there were so many spelling and typographical errors committed, that the meaning of the texts was altered and many problems were created. Precisely for that reason, the Apostolate of New Evangelization, at the suggestion of some priests and bishops, took the decision to request that readers should not make any further transcriptions of these texts, for any reason or under any circumstance, without the strict surveillance and the due authorization of our Director General.

APPENDIX D HELP THE ANE TO HELP
ll these books constitute a true gift from God for people who desire to grow spiritually, and it is for that reason that the sale price barely covers the cost of their printing and distribution. However, as disciples of Christ, the Apostolate of New Evangelization, among other activities, is developing a wide range of spiritual and corporal works of mercy to the needy in seven charitable locations which distribute food and clothing to the people, and hundreds of places supplied with basic foodstuffs from the family basket, by promoting evangelization and catechesis in distant villages, and by providing spiritual and material support to our brothers and sisters in any number of jails and hospitals (mainly in Latin America). All this work can only be carried out through the generosity of people who responding to the Voice of the Lord, are supporting those who are most in need and are donating their time, their efforts and their material resources for the purpose of this charity. If you, the reader of this book find within yourself the desire to help us in the building of the Kingdom, please get in contact with us through the addresses and telephone numbers at the end of this Appendix. The harvest is great, but the workers will always be few. Likewise, if you wish to contribute monetarily to the development of this Work, you can do so by making your tax deductible donation check payable to “ANE-USA” and mailed to: Love & Mercy Publications, P.O. Box 1160, Hampstead, NC 28443, USA. Donations can be sent along with book and video orders but they must be made with separate checks with the book and video order check made payable to: Love and Mercy Publications. Donations will then be transferred to the ANE International Headquarters. In the name of the Lord, we thank you in advance for any help you can offer us, and we entreat Him who is generous and provident, to reward you one hundredfold. May God bless you,

But in her recent books, this one especially, we begin to perceive the essence of Catalina’s soul and the depth of her spirituality and love of Jesus and His Mother The Visible Face of an Invisible God: A testimony with a 2005 Imprimatur that speaks to us about the importance of living our Christianity consciously and of deepening our conversion. It invites us to rediscover the commitment that we, being baptized, have acquired, so that we can assume this responsibility with the befitting seriousness.

Set of 7 Books of Formational Teachings These are the initial books of teachings dictated by Jesus and Mary to Catalina from 1993 to 1998, all with a 1998 Imprimatur.
